Nowness: Server RoomDirected by AB/CD/CD
In an ill-conceived attempt to restore the natural balance between living creatures and computers, an AI machine inadvertently becomes the harbinger of widespread destruction and chaos.
Based on Richard Brautigan poem from 1967 “All watched over by machines of loving grace”, director duo AB/CD/CD create a collage of real and digitalised landscapes where faces melt into wavelengths of color and scenic valleys are reduced to topological maps.
"Dystopia is no longer tomorrow. It is here, now and today. Entropy is real and will never stop. That’s how we understand R. Brautigan’s poem when we read it today. That’s what it means to us. He may have written it in a much more optimistic way in a much more optimistic time… Or was he being sarcastic?" AB/CD/CD
