Event Description

FutureFantastic is a first-of-its-kind AI and Arts Festival in India, highlighting the power that collaborative creative production has in amplifying a global response to our shared climate emergency. The festival showcases a heady mix of AI-enabled artworks and performances. Audiences are also invited to participate in panels and workshops led by experts in tech, art and sustainability to bring to the fore a multidimensional perspective to the conversation. All of this with the belief that as engaged global citizens, we can create a radical, open, and optimistic future. Together. We are pleased about the long-standing collaboration with JAAGA, which first brought BeFantastic and now FutureFantastic to life.

Merging human performers with the power of real-time text created by a machine, this performative piece explores the city of Bangalore, its neighbourhoods, people, peculiarities and dark corners. The endless stream of consciousness of an artificial neural network is confronted with our very human condition — thoughtful and confused, touching and outrageous, all at once! For a never stopping 12 hours, four human performers will interpret, speak and play texts created in that very moment by a large language model, followed by a camera through the streets of Bangalore and streamed live to the festival centre and various locations around the country and the world.
