"Artificial Cinema": Robot Love 2018
This edition of Artificial Cinema was specially made for ROBOT LOVE and consists of two parts. It is the result of a group effort under the artistic direction of Sam Samiee and Mohammad Salemy. The first part is a selection of the most important (scenes from) science fiction films made by 100 artists and philosophers through a survey. Thereafter, the selection of scenes was left to an algorithm. The second part is a human reaction to these films, taking the shape of paintings. Samiee and Salemy hereby sketch a vision for painting in a post-cinema epoch and envision new futures in which man is no longer pivotal.
