The Museum of the Future: Machinic Life is an exhibition at the World Government Summit in Dubai exploring the future impact of current advancements in robotics and artificial intelligence on society.

As part of the Idee und Klang Team, i was involved in the sound design and programming for various areas in the exhibition. Mainly i was working on the “UAE HyperMind”. Visitors enter the nerve center of the UAE HyperMind, a massively interconnected artificial intelligence that is tasked with responsibly managing society. An cylindric LED object in the center of the room, which shows an cloud of particles the user is able to interact with. For this area i worked as part of the Idee und Klang team on a generative sound design tool wich transformed the visual appearance into a multichannel soundscape inside of the “UAE HyperMind”.
