Pro Helvetia- Swiss Arts Council in partnership with swissnex India organizes the DAI – Dancing Artificial Intelligence at Bengaluru this month!

DAI is an Artificial Intelligence artist. What this means is that it* thinks; it doesn’t follow a script or act randomly. Here, in its first physical form, DAI is a performer and is inviting you to view the second part of its movement creation process. In the first part of the process DAI had to explore its body and its environment. In this part of the process we’re expecting DAI to search for ways to overcome some of the limitations that the physical world has imposed upon its virtual aspirations.

*In English “it” will be used until DAI can communicate his/her/it’s preference

About the Artists

Artists Jonathan O’Hear, Martin Rautenstrauch and Timothy O’Hear reunite for this unique project that just happens to require their particular skill sets. Kindled by their passion for building a robot together and an obsession to do a project on AI for the past few years… the DAI project was born. Martin Rautenstrauch, a trained sculptor from the Beaux-Arts of Paris; Timothy O’Hear, an engineer at EPFL; and Jonathan O’Hear, a filmmaker worked together to realise DAI, 2017 – Dancing Artificial Intelligence. More about each artist here.
