Never Alone

Never Alone, copyright Matt Gingold, Thecla Schiphorst, Philippe Pasquier

Never Alone (2016) is a generative large-scale urban screen video-sound installation, which presents the idea of generative choreographies amongst multiple video agents, or 'digital performers'. This generative installation questions how we navigate in urban spaces and the ubiquity and disruptive nature of encounters within the cities' landscapes. The video agents explore precarious movement paths along the façade inhabiting landscapes that are both architectural and emotional.

Never Alone comments on the overlapping relationships between materiality, poetics, aesthetics and the human experience of interiority and asks how these concepts can express themselves within the emerging field of computational creativity.
