Exhibited at The Serpentine from April to May 2019, Power Plants features a new film work in an immersive installation that expands throughout the building. Co-commissioned with The Store X, it revolves around anticipating the future in unpredictable ways, using Artificial Intelligence. Situated between cinema and fine art, Steyerl’s work develops from research, interviews and found images, culminating in installations that interweave documentary with dream-like montage.

The images and sound within the film are generated via AI, a specially-developed algorithm that warps and morphs inputted data. Produced by The Vinyl Factory, the soundtrack accompanying the film is a collaboration with British musician, rapper and sound artist, Kojey Radical, whose lyrics have similarly been placed through an algorithmic reconfiguration.

Steyerl’s new film is the first video installation to show the closest possible portrayal of the future.
