A 360-degree extravaganza of colour and light, Limitless AI is a love letter to humanity’s greatest achievements, told in 5 chapters.
“An awe-inspiring adventure where imagination meets innovation!” – Secret NYC
“Get ready to experience a sensory overload.” – Thrillist
Internationally-renowned digital creators Ferdi & Eylul Alici (Ouchhh Collective) give audiences their most ambitious show yet: a package of five immersive experiences that visualize and animate unique data sets – spanning art, the greatest minds in science, the world of subatomic particles, and the cosmos. The team’s collaboration with artificial intelligence (AI), in the making of each chapter, heralds the Dawn of AI Art, where AI itself becomes a powerful lens for imagining and making. The show’s final chapter, SuperStrings AI, is a marvel of technology: the brainwaves of a musical artist (performing live in front of you) are turned into patterned visuals that pulse and dance in real-time. Every show is a unique experience.
You’re free to move around in the space, to take in the experience from numerous vantages, to sit down on the floor, even lie down if you choose. Each chapter is paired to an original sound score, and each chapter begins with a voiced introduction that frames + explains what you’re about to see. Videos below give you a taste of each chapter.
In Poetic AI, the AI supercomputer interprets 20 million lines of text by the greatest scientific minds of all time, from Galileo to Stephen Hawking, in an encompassing immersive experience.
Leonardo AI – Wisdom of Light
Imagine if an AI enabled supercomputer was taught to paint and then studied the great Renaissance Masters – Da Vinci, Michelangelo Botticelli and Raphael. See the resulting artwork featuring 15 billion brush strokes painted onto a large scale 3D canvas – presented with the music of Ludovico Einaudi, the acclaimed composer of Nomadland.
Experience millions of reimagined explosions of subatomic particles shown in awe-inspiring scale. This experience was created in collaboration with the team of researchers at the Large Hadron Collider at Cern, Switzerland.
Imagine movements of celestial bodies brought lightyears closer with visualisations based on one million gigabytes of data gathered from the Kepler Space Telescope. Created in collaboration with NASA.
For the first time on American soil – see artificial intelligence render brainwaves into an immersive experience in real time. Nothing is pre-recorded. Every live performance is unique to that show, never having been seen before and never to be seen again.
AI is revolutionary
For each chapter of Limitless AI, the team at Ouchhh Collective meticulously crafted algorithms that shape how AI turns a chosen data set into a room full of stunning visuals – think of these algorithms as the “artist’s brush”. It deserves emphasizing: these data sets are astonishingly large – which underscores the interesting idea that this show wouldn’t even be possible without AI. Limitless AI is a marker that locates us on a civilizational on-ramp: humans are increasingly using AI to do everything.
This is the global premiere of Limitless AI.
Ferdi Alici and Eylul Alici
Ferdi and Eylul Alici are the co-directors of Ouchhh, and creators of the award-winning, global sensation Poetic AI seen by 1 million visitors in Paris.
They strive to find the balance between art, science, technology and new media in every work they create. They create award-winning public art, AI data sculptures, AI data paintings, video mapping projections, kinetic sculptures, and immersive experiences that bring nature and computational design together.
Ferdi and Eylul Alici believe that science inspires great art. Scientific research & methods introduce a certain way of thinking that is usually not present in an artist’s mind, unlocking new ways of interpreting, developing and visualizing artwork. Creativity and logic are equal partners in their unique interdisciplinary philosophy.
Their belief in the power of AI and data art is on full display in Limitless AI, demonstrating Ouchhh’s interdisciplinary fascination with mathematics, geology, nature, as well as the works of particle physicists, inventors, and architects.
Ouchhh is the pioneering, multi-disciplinary creative studio behind Limitless AI. The studio specializes in data paintings and sculptures, focused on re-imagining how context and experience intertwine in art, science and technology, always with a view of integrating them into public spaces. The team consists of engineers, academics, designers, creative coders, media artists, motion graphic designers, video mapping experts, and other talented individuals from a vast array of backgrounds.
By using Artificial Intelligence (AI), Ouchhh has created more than 50 immersive artworks that have been displayed in cities all over the world – Tokyo, L.A., Beijing, Sao Paolo, Milan, Abu Dhabi, Hong Kong, Berlin, Moscow, Singapore, and Melbourne. Limitless AI brings the best of these world installations, expanded and reimagined, to Brooklyn NY.
Wearable: Vibrotextile Suit
In a special partnership with Music: Not Impossible, creators of Vibrotextile — inclusive, wearable technology that translates sound onto the skin through vibration, inspired by the deaf community — Limitless AI will offer a limited number of guests at every show the opportunity to adorn its revolutionary, wearable suit, translating live music into physical vibration on the skin in real-time. The vibro-tactile suit is free of charge for Deaf and hard-of-hearing audience members, with an advance reservation and ticket purchase. It is available to other ticketholders for an additional charge.
