ON PLINY’S PATHS Artists’ Exchange Cologne — Tunis 2023

Friedrich Boell presented an installation consisting of two historic TV sets displaying real-time generated visuals. He had programmed an AI-based system to mix recorded images of natural environments and at times filmed impressions of the exhibition space in seamless visuals. The interactive set-up allowed the visitors to alter the generated visual materials.
