14 October - 28 November 2021
Worldwide, we watch a billion hours of online video.
Games, music, news, make-up, asmr, vlogs, documentaries, tutorials, interviews, reviews, challenges and, of course, cat videos! Each minute, 500 hours of video material are being uploaded to YouTube alone.
With LAWKI-Alive, the third iteration of Life As We Know It, ARK condenses this unimaginable amount of digital footage to an intuitive dynamic livestream driven by AI and the visitors’ movements. Smartly indexed search results continuously generate new associative visual stories in ten different languages.
The result is an overpowering stream of images showing what keeps people busy from Boston to Bangalore. World and screen are no longer separate, we are in MU, but we are everywhere and nowhere at once as well.
An excellent opportunity to get to know life (all over).
Luckily, we won't be closed till then! Because as an opening act for LAWKI-Alive, from Friday 24 September MU shows NO EXIT by Design Displacement Group.
