Explorer – Sun powered art object

Created by Jelle Reith, Explorer is a solar-powered art object with a dynamically scaled frame rate, designed to conserve energy during those dark winter days.

Web – A deterministic universe

Web is a fully on-chain generative cross-linked network of 1000 webpages on Ethereum mainnet. All pages and the links between them are generated and form a deterministic universe.

Persistence of Vision – Subverting civil infrastructure

Persistence of Vision is a public installation that adapts recognisable civil infrastructure into an interactive experience. The project is a reaction to our current state of surveillance, be it self initiated or passive, by revealing an often overlooked or ignored component of our city, and plays on many emerging technologies that are fast embedded into our daily lives, such as AI and computer vision.

The Ambient Machine – Yuri Suzuki

Created by Yuri Suzuki in partnership with Pentagram Design, and currently available for purchase from E&Y, The Ambient Machine is a 32 toggle switch sequencer with a variety of sounds and music to design your own background ambience.

Unpredictable Atmosphere at 24GHz

Unpredictable atmosphere is a research project that investigates a thin and unstable layer above the ground where data, both transmitted and collected, acquire new dimensions in an invisible landscape of conflict.

Narratron – Shadow play with a storytelling AI

Narratron is an interactive projector that augments hand shadow puppetry with AI-generated storytelling. Designed for all ages, it transforms traditional physical shadow plays into an immersive and phygital storytelling experience.

VBox – AI-powered radio for musical exploration

Created by Danning Liang and Artem Laptiev at the MIT’s School of Architecture and Planning, VBox is an AI-powered radio for musical exploration and group vibrations. Through the Large Language Model, VBox captures the various abstracted understandings of the song played in the form of texts and lets you travel down one of these rabbit holes to find more of what is hard to describe.

A knot in motion: on the accident of rain

Build upon the fiction of a knot tied between the two tropical lines along the Atlantic forest in Jundiaí (BR) and the tropical desert in El Kharja oasis (EG), the project gathers and ties together voices from artists based within the tropics speaking with and about the tropical rain through their local perspectives.

KRILLER – Globally synced broadcast of synth-soaked ambient software

KRILLER is an eternally looping, seven day, globally synced audio-visual broadcast of synth soaked ambient software (online) experience. The weeklong broadcast is divided into 6300 software art ‘cassettes’, each bound to a specific moment of time during the week, minted by its fabricator, and seamlessly fusing with its predecessor and successor to form audiovisual duets and mashups.

Adnose – Anosmia and (ML) smell prediction

dnose is an interactive sculpture in the shape of a nose created at NYU, Tisch School of the Arts ITP (Interactive Telecommunications Program) which combines image recognition and machine learning using a Raspberry Pi to predict the smell of any object placed underneath it.


Elisava has partnered with the creative research lab IAM to launch a new Master in Design for Responsible Artificial Intelligence, a part-time and low residency programme that brings together designers, strategists, trend researchers, futurists, new media artists, cultural producers, journalists and creative technologists to tackle precisely these kinds of questions.

Evolution – Animate and the inanimate

“Evolution” is an immersive audio-visual installation and performance that celebrates the vitality of inorganic materials. The project takes its inspiration from the physics phenomenon of Cymatics, which has demonstrated that certain substances can autonomously form complex patterns in response to vibrations.

Animas – Music co-creation with AI

Anima is an interactive installation that facilitates a musical jam session between humans and machines. Operating much like a sequencer, Anima uses open-source AI algorithms to generate musical sequences.

Space Odyssey – Azure Kinect & TouchDesigner Powered Interactive Projection

Commissioned by GOFY, Hologrix’s Space Odyssey is an interactive installation that takes audiences on an immersive journey through outer space. We created three real-time generative scenes using TouchDesigner software and projected onto a 12-meter-wide canvas on the façade of a building. The installation uses Microsoft’s Azure Kinect device to track motion data of participants as…

Vague Boundaries – Particles, lines, and waves

Created by Jonghong Park, Vague Boundaries explores ‘boundaries’ between matter and phenomena. The custom made machine draws straight lines continuously on the paper by snapping the thread with the mechanism of the chalk line tool.
