Networked Beings – Parameters and Parallels’ is an immersive video-installation, showing a visual dialog between two distinctly non-human forms of ‘being’ and processing the world. By countering the deconstructed, data-processing of an AI Neural Network with a speculative dataset of animal perceptions – hinting at the expansiveness of the natural world -, the narrative implicitly criticises the inherent limitations of typical image-datasets used within the field of Machine Learning AI today.
