Can a machine dream? Dreaming is the result of complex interactions between body, thought, memories and experiences. This is the exploration at hand in this in-situ installation project. During the day, the device examines its visual context and records stimuli that will then inspire its “musings”. At night, free associations of visual elements are shown to the audience. Using an artificial intelligence and a memory model in order to construct its “dreams”, the system re-creates and externalizes that which usually belongs to the screen of our thoughts.
