The installation created for the WRO Biennale 2019 communicates with a plane tree (platanus), characteristic for Wrocław. It allowed spectators to take part in that communication using signals received on their own smartphones and tablets.
Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, the WRO 2019 Media Art Biennale was devoted to exploring the HUMAN ASPECT. On its 30th anniversary, Poland’s largest show of international contemporary art has explored the development of communication tools ever since, offers a critical scrutiny of processes unfolding in culture, communication, and society by examining the HUMAN ASPECT from a post-technological perspective. During 2019 WRO events was exploring the complexity of the current relations between the human and the technological, with the human as an initiator, a recipient, and sometimes a victim of these mutating interplays.
« EDEN Human Aspect» installation at WRO Biennale fronts « Senster », the first moving AI sculpture which moved directly and recognisably in response to what was going on around it, created by the Polish cybernetic art sculptor Edward Ihnatowicz in 1967. EDEN is a new kind of organic network based on vegetal medium.. The work transforms this encrypted communication into a comprehensive and open network. The trees included into the project can talk together across continents, and humans can follow their communication through an interactive smartphone application created by the artist. Than the Human Aspect is facing the Artificial Iintelligence.
