Bonn Sustainable AI Lab at Ars Electronica Festival

The Bonn Sustainable AI Lab team was very excited to travel to Austria for one of the most important festivals for digital art: Ars Electronica. The festival took place from 7-11 September 2022 in Linz, Austria, and focussed on the interlinkages between art, technology and society.

At the festival, the ArtScience Residency’s winner Irakli Sabekia presented his ‘Archive of Spatial Knowledge’, the artwork he created in the framework of the residency with the Sustainable AI Lab.

Aimee van Wynsberghe and Irakli Sabekia participated in the panel “Residency. But How?” and shared their experiences with the residency programme.

ArtScience Residency 2022 - The winners

“My team at the Bonn Sustainable AI Lab and I are incredibly excited to collaborate with Špela Petrič and Irakli Sabekia, two exceptional artists with fascinating project ideas. Their proposals deal with two very different but equally pressing and relevant topics – the usage of artificial intelligence in the healthcare sector and the Russian occupation of territories in Georgia. They are concerned with the wider issues of global injustice and power and making the hidden visible, which is a strong connection to the research happening at the Bonn Sustainable AI Lab. Bringing art, science and ethics together is one of our lab’s key goals, so I look forward to many inspiring encounters and exchanges between our lab team and the artists.”
(Prof. Dr. Aimee van Wynsberghe, March 2022)
