Natalia Alfutova’s new artwork follows the path which the artist has been exploring recently; with The Oneiroid, Natalia delves into ethical questions of humanity coexisting with rapidly evolving technologies. Can artificial intelligence get really close to our sensuality and our perception system in general? Or, maybe, the difference is not that big anymore, and the capabilities of our brain have similar limitations? Do artificial neural networks behind funny filters on Instagram, massive face recognition systems, and stock exchange trading software suffer the same constraints as our minds? For many decades futurologists and science fiction writers keep searching for the answers, and contemporary artists have also joined the crowd. Stelarc is one famous example of a performance artist who has experimented with his body in an attempt to find some answers.
