DMSTFCTN AT UNSOUND FESTIVAL / KRAKOW 2022 / 14 OCTOBER 2022

DMSTFCTN PRESENTS ‘GOD MODE (EP.1)’ AT UNSOUND (PL)

FRIDAY 14TH OCTOBER 2022 – 17.15 – MORE INFO CLICK HERE

God Mode (ep. 1) is an interactive lecture-performance by artist duo dmstfctn, set in a 3D simulation increasingly used to train deep-learning computer vision systems for real-world tasks. In God Mode (ep. 1), an AI destined for deployment in a cashierless store is trained to recognise items on the shelves of a simulated supermarket, while delivering a monologue about its condition, co-written with language model GPT-3. Aspects of the training method are turned into game mechanics that let the audience modify the environment via phone, welcoming interaction as a means to explore the characteristics and test the limitations of this process. Features an original soundtrack by artist Hero Image.

DMSTFCTN is an artist duo based across London and Berlin, working with audiovisual performance, installation, and film.
