ARTECHOUSE PRESENTS: ‘TRUST’ with fuse*
New York, NY – ARTECHOUSE, a pioneer in the field of innovative digital and experiential art, will kick off the 2022 season at its New York City location with a brand new commission titled TRUST, in partnership with acclaimed Italian studio fuse*.
Open to the public from January 31 to May 30, 2022, TRUST is a unique data-driven, audiovisual immersive exhibition that explores and interprets the multiple meanings and implications of the concept of trust. On a broad level, through data examination it observes how historical events have influenced trust and considers how this can evolve in the future. More specifically, it further uses the data points to examine how the presence or absence of trust can shift the perception of our individual realities.
“In conceiving our spaces our goal has always been to create a technological canvas capable of empowering and inspiring artists to push the limits of creative innovation. I am thrilled that our capabilities of real-time data visualizations are enabling the creative vision of fuse* studio in telling the story of TRUST. This new commission is an exciting opportunity to not only explore possibilities within the field of data-driven art, but to also examine up close ways in which our seemingly personal feelings of trust can affect the entire world and have far-reaching implications,” – Sandro, ARTECHOUSE Founder & Chief Creative Officer
Using historical and current indicators of trust in our society, such as historical news and economic indexes, fuse* analyzes and artistically translates the levels of this feeling into visuals. The exhibition delves into a conceptual timeline and takes the viewer through three ‘chapters’: Past, based on a historical data archive; Present, using data that is constantly processed to create everchanging art; and Future, from predictions of trust moving forward. In order to predict future levels of trust, fuse* trained a recurrent neural network (RNN) to make forecasts. The work is then brought to life using ARTECHOUSE’s unprecedented presentation system composed of high-resolution projection, hyperreal immersive sound technology and custom made software, created to support the creative experimentation of today’s artists.
fuse* is a multidisciplinary art studio working with emerging technology to interpret the complexity of human and natural phenomena. In 2019, the Italian studio had its North American solo debut at ARTECHOUSE’s Washington, DC location with the exhibition Everything in Existence, featuring some of the collective’s most important installations from the previous 10 years. The objective of fuse* is to push past accepted limits, spur empathy and seek out new interplay between light, space, sound and movement.
“Through this exhibition, we aim to offer viewers an opportunity to think about the meaning of “trust” and convey our belief that at any time, we have the option to choose whether to be guided by fear and anger, or to have the courage to trigger change. Our choices define our future.” – fuse* collective.
TRUST is the latest in the series of ARTECHOUSE collaborations with some of the most innovative artists and partners working at the intersection of art, science, and technology today, which in the past have included Refik Anadol, Zach Lieberman, Rhizomatiks, NONOTAK, Society for Neuroscience and more.
