Installation view, Bell Vitrines, salvaged modular wall panels from Bell Labs.
In June 2016, at the site of the former Bell Labs, sixteen workers photographed 100,000 individual rose petals. The massive dataset they compiled was used to map out an artificial intelligence algorithm that learned to generate new, unique petals forever.
This will be New York-based artist Sarah Meyohas’ (Wharton 2013) first large-scale exhibition and virtual reality experience, Cloud of Petals. The two-floor exhibition is the culmination of an extensive yearlong project that is both archival and experiential. Meyohas investigates the artificiality of beauty by enlisting the faculties of human subjectivity through a body of work that integrates sculpture, photography, artificial intelligence, and organic matter.
The exhibition has received media coverage in New York magazine, Forbes, Artforum, Artnet, Observer, Yahoo! Lifestyle and many other print and online media.
Installation view, six interactive virtual reality scenes.
