One Week About  Hidden Gems of the Dutch Design Week 2021, today we show LAWKI-Alive by ARK Collective

LAWKI-Alive dives into the digital overload of footage that we throw into the world on a daily basis and the associative way in which we ourselves and an Artificial Intelligence deal with it. Worldwide, we watch a billion hours of online video. A. Day. Games, music, news, make-up, asmr, vlogs, documentaries, tutorials, interviews, reviews, challenges and, of course, cat videos! Each minute, 500 hours of video material are being uploaded to YouTube alone.

With LAWKI-Alive, the third iteration of Life As We Know It, the ARK collective condenses this unimaginable amount of digital footage to an intuitive dynamic livestream driven by AI and the visitors’ movements. Smartly indexed search results continuously generate new associative visual stories in ten different languages.

The result is an overpowering stream of images showing what keeps people busy from Boston to Bangalore. World and screen are no longer separate, we are in MU, but we are everywhere and nowhere at once as well. An excellent opportunity to get to know life (all over).

ARK is: Arran Lyon (GB), Federico Campagna (IT), Louis Braddock Clarke (GB), Roosje Klap (NL), Senka Milutonovic (RS), Teoniki Rozynek (PL), Valentin Vogelmann (DE) en Zuzanna Zgierska (PL)
