Busy, busy, always a busy bee: this is how most of us feel. Just relaxing and doing nothing, with the help of A.I.? Designer/ artist Emanuel Gollob gave us just that.
A talk with designer and artist Emanuel Gollob, who with his project Doing Nothing With A.I. gave us the chance to relax with the help of A.I.
Enjoying the moment, being totally relaxed without distractions: way more productive in the long run than constantly being engaged in (online) activities. In this day and age, we keep getting distracted by our digital technologies; it can be a tricky thing to keep our brain healthy and ‘chill’.
Can A.I. help us to get into a mode of hyper-attention? This is exactly what Emanuel gave us with his multi-disciplinary project Doing Nothing With A.I., where you enjoy a moment of inaction and introspection. For us, he explains the ins and outs of this work.
Emanuel Gollob’s visit is made possible by the International visitation programme of Het Nieuwe Instituut with support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
