A Monocular Dialogue

3D Printing, Mechatronics, Microprocessors, Computer Vision, Generative AI

A Monocular Dialogue incarnates myths in the age of information and technology. It is an encounter with a single-eyed robot that stares at you and endlessly whispers its inner ruminations. Underneath this confluence of Greek mythology and artificial intelligence (AI) lie intriguing, albeit metaphorical, similarities. This 3D-printed polyphemus symbolizes their narrow and limited perspectives, suggests their creation by higher powers, and alludes to the monumental tasks they perform. Between irony and nostalgia, this eye-to-eye dialogue is staged as “the AI is present”.
