10,000 still images are linked together in a mind-expanding, cosmic sensory bombardment as a catalogue of everything the world holds – according to a computer. In ‘Abyss’, video artist Jeppe Lange has used Google’s image search engine to create a montage in which each image resembles the previous one as closely as possible. It’s just the crucial differences that make ‘Abyss’ a constantly mutating, hallucinatory experience before your eyes. Artificial intelligence, in fact, is not interested in scale, emotion or context, but only in abstract patterns, colours and correlations. And then suddenly it’s not very far from nebulae to specks of dust.Please note: The film is not recommended for viewers with epilepsy.
