Dragonfly is the result of a collaboration between Andreas Greiner and Jan Philipp Balthasar Müller. A hovering drone films an indoor palm tree. The resulting images are transformed by a neural algorithm that was trained on a vast database including many animal images (google deep dream). In this setting, two separate enteties, one recent and technological, and one ancient and natural, are put into a contextual dialogue. Frame by frame, a growing loop of artificial hallucinations enfolds on the screen.
