ARTECHOUSE teams up with fuse* once again for a brand new commission in our NYC space. Trust is a data driven, audiovisual exhibition that elaborates on 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.
Step into an immersive data driven world and examine up close ways in which our seemingly personal feelings of trust can affect the entire world, and have far reaching implications.
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 ever-changing 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 ecosystem composed of high-resolution projection, hyperreal immersive sound technology and custom made software, created to support creative experimentation of today’s artists.
