The Unmanned - 1922 - The Uncomputable

Fabien Giraud & Raphaël Siboni

Giraud and Siboni’s work is underpinned by an aspiration to decenter, to shift perspectives in order to adopt a point of view that redefines the practice of cinema towards an extra-human experience.

The development of drones and new measuring and viewing devices thrusts us into different space-time coordinates. Is it necessary to forsake the human as a reference point in order to think about man’s future? What can post-humanist theories contribute to how our story is told? After screening their films, the artists share their views in a conversation with Laurence Bertrand-Dorléac, co-curator of the spring 2018 “Artists & Robots” show at the Grand Palais. This exhibition aims to question the status of artistic and creative activity in the age of robotics and artificial intelligence and allow visitors to experience works based on the collaboration between artists and the computer programmes they invented.
