Stefano D´Alessio: MY MACHINES STOLE MY JOB (AND IT´S FINE)

An exhibition by the DIGITAL ART class in the Schauraum Angewandte in the MuseumsQuartier
Stefano D´Alessio is a lecturer at digital art

The fear that machines will replace human work is nothing new. It can even date back to the invention of the plough and became very prevalent during the Second Industrial Revolution. Lately, the topic has regained importance with the advance and spread of artificial intelligence and its implementations. In the meantime, the current pandemic is also shaking the traditional concept of human labour.

This work is the result of a personal investigation into self-generative, real-time audio-visual composition. It is a self-sufficient system that infinitely plays ever-changing synchronous sounds and visuals without the need of human interaction. So I don’t need to be here to perform as my machines are doing everything for me – but every now and then I might pass by for a nap.
 
Stefano D’Alessio was born in 1987 in Trieste, Italy. He is a new media artist, performer, composer, educator, and all-round tech nerd. D’Alessio creates audio-visual compositions, interactive performances, and installations, which employ media as performing partners, while focusing on their influence on human behaviour.
