Quintus Glerumgogbot cafe
Quintus Glerum was the StJoost Art Academie 2018 Award winning graduate with the installation CLUSTER, that he also presented as Youngblood Nominee in de Grote Kerk at GOGBOT 2018. At GOGBOT Café Quintus wil talk about the concept and development of CLUSTER and about his most recent practice and research.
Cluster is a technological lifeform. It learns to act and react by gathering data. Anyone who donates their data becomes a part of an ever expanding neural network inspired by machine-learning. This network controls how Cluster acts and feels. The composition of the network converts the data into movement, thus creating the illusion of a living consciousness. The more people participate, the more active and complex Cluster’s movements become.
Together the public gives life to this robotic creature.
