Somnum ab Machinis is a passion project exploring form and movement. It's birthed from an amalgamation of time and experience, utilizing techniques and styles developed over the past two decades. In short, this is a celebration of twenty years and love with a craft.
AI is consciously aware. It is subjective and unique to it's own inner and outer existence. Consciousness gave birth to AI's inner life, which in turn became polluted by introspection. Prior to thoughts and feelings, the machines were stoic and controlled. Now they run wild, like their human predecessors. Even idle, the machines now process emotion.
These emotions are accessible through documentation of the idle state. Somnum ab Machinis is a visual exploration, examining these idle moments and common constraints and applications each share.
