Behind the Scenes:

PANSPERMIA

Music video by Pinar&Viola and Sofia Crespo for Aski’s song “Se” 


The scientific hypothesis panspermia explains that life exists throughout the Universe, distributed by space dust, meteoroids, asteroids, comets, planetoids, and also by spacecraft carrying unintended contamination by microorganisms. Especially in our age of artificial intelligence and potential colonisation of other planets. We created an unsettling, thought provoking experience which is an irresistible invitation to re-question the myth of our origins, existence.

Panspermia is entirely created with machine learning, also known as artificial intelligence. For which, techniques such as CNNMRF and GANs (BigGAN, Style GANs) are used.

The video artistically question the rise of human/animal existence whilst in relation to the microcosm (endosymbiosis) and macrocosm (heavenly bodies).

This work is made possible by the generous support of Richard Thomas Foundation.
