Memo Akten is an artist working with computation as a medium, exploring the collisions between nature, science, technology, ethics, ritual, tradition and religion.
Combining critical and conceptual approaches with investigations into form, movement and sound, he creates data dramatizations of natural and anthropogenic processes. Alongside his practice, he is currently working towards a PhD at Goldsmiths University of London in artificial intelligence and expressive human-machine interaction.
Memo's work has been shown and performed internationally, featured in books and academic papers; and in 2013 Memo received the Prix Ars Electronica Golden Nica for his collaboration with Quayola, ‘Forms’.
Intelligent Machines that Learn: What Do They Know? Do They Know Things?? Let's Find Out!
The journey for each of us begins here.
We’re going to explore the cosmos in a ship of the imagination, unfettered by ordinary limits on speed and size, drawn by the music of cosmic harmonies. It can take us anywhere in space and time.
Perfect as a snowflake, organic as a dandelion seed, it will carry us to worlds of dreams and worlds of facts. Come with me.
