Performance for Actress and Artificial Intelligence

Performance in Trastevere, Rome, on May 31, 2022 by NuvolaProject. The voice of performer Gaia Riposati is intercepted and analyzed by AI algorithms in real time with a Sentiment Analysis procedure and the perceived emotions and feelings are then transformed into commands sent tol the interactive sculpture Nuvola (Cloud). The colors of the sculpture are related to the perceived feeling. The sentences and words intercepted by the AI are shown on a projection behind the performer.

This is a concept that we have been investigatin for several years. The idea is to conceive a performance/spectacle in which artificial intelligence algorithms do not play the role of mere tools, but establish a collaborative relationship with the authors and performers, becoming co-stars of the event.
