“Autokatakritos – self-condemned” is an autonomous audio-visual installation, combined with physical, electronic, and digital components to simulate an AI machine that is conceptually affected and physically programmed to be addicted to smoking. In this installation, every viewer has a choice to decides to turn the whole system on by feeding the physical part of the sculpture with a cigarette and experiences approximately 5 minutes of the machine’s journey from its born stage (Order system) to its death stage (disorder system).
