The exhibition’s eponymous, sublime AI Data Sculpture, Nature Dreams utilizes over 300 million publicly available photographs of nature collected between 2018- 2021 at Refik Anadol Studio. Combined, this represents the largest raw dataset of nature ever gathered for an artwork, which was then used to train a GAN AI algorithm. The resulting AI Data Painting incorporates pigments, shapes, and patterns that we associate with nature, but only exist in the mind of a machine as dreams. Each variation features a stunning visual interpretation, together forming a multi- faceted reflection of the nuanced relationship between technology, humanity, and culture. With the assistance of the Google AI Quantum team, Anadol was granted access to one of the world’s foremost quantum computing research projects all- owing him to merge AI-induced latent space with a quantum hyperspace, and thus speculate an alternative reality through the lens of nature aesthetics.

REFIK ANADOL Machine Hallucinations – Nature Dreams, 2021 RAN/NFT 6/01 Non-fungible Token (NFT) AI Data Sculpture, Video loop (color, sound) Dimensions variable, square format LED screen size: 10m x 10m (LED screen is not included) 20 min. loop 1/1

This artwork comes with an artist-signed 3D physical certificate with backup source installation files, a custom computer with software, to be shipped by the artist to the future buyer. Refik Anadol‘s studio will assist the future buyer with installation instructions and oversight. The LED screen is not included.

KÖNIG GALERIE presents MACHINE HALLUCINATIONS: NATURE DREAMS, Refik Anadol’s second large-scale solo exhibition in Germany. Almost two years after his site-specific installation LATENT BEING, the artist returns to Berlin to reveal the aesthetic outcomes of his research into the intersection of human consciousness, archives of nature, and machine intelligence.

MACHINE HALLUCINATIONS: NATURE DREAMS, designed specifically for KÖNIG GALERIE, comprises three novel aesthetic approaches to a vast photographic dataset of nature: A giant data sculpture displaying machine-generated, dynamic pigments of nature titled NATURE DREAMS, four new series of data paintings, and WINDS OF BERLIN, a site-specific, public art projection on the tower of ST. AGNES which will be created based on environmental real-time data collected from the city. 06 NOV. 2021 – 17 DEC. 2021 Berlin, Germany.
