Artificial intelligence is an idea from the past, fascinating and scary at the same time. Artificial intelligence describes the belief in progress, it´s a projection from the

Sound and screen of this video clip deal with artificial intelligence as past, present and future at once. The visuals are projected on a moving surface and show a disruptive scenario, in which progress means substitution.

The belief in progress up to the potential of a self-processable replacement. But in the end artificial intelligence remains unaffected science fiction, a subject from the past, present and future at the same time.
