Themes of perception, inner drives of mankind and the ultimate fear of technology taking over the human race were the inspiration behind this project by Catalan director and film producer Albert Serra, which investigates the tension between the creative genius of mankind and the threat that this creativity poses. Entitled ‘All The World’s Future’, this audio-visual installation was presented at the 56th International Art Exhibition in Venice this year, where Serra’s project represented Catalan artists and their ideas on the matter. It explores singularity—the hypothetical future when artificial intelligence will surpass that of humans. The exhibition’s curator, Chus Martínez explained, “The intention is to create a large visual set of circumstances…a series of suggested ‘facts’ that envisage the images produced in our time and the way they can be overcome.” In today’s age of technological advancements, the way we perceive our world and the fears that we have towards it are the focus of Serra’s exhibition, using cinema as a mean of exploring the singularity condition and how technology both helps and hinders our perception and understanding of the world.
