Hannes Egger, AI or the Philosopher Stone, 2020

IACOS is an artistic intelligence that came first to Bolzano and then to Ancona. Hannes Egger, as an artist, was to give it a form and chose a golden asteroid that evolved during the project.
It all starts with a photo on a black background, from which an asteroid passing through Bolzano and Ancona emerges and becomes a large golden sculpture that prints out information about the city in Ancona, created by an algorithm.
