SystemFailed: In a performative experimental set-up, ArtesMobiles tests the use of a self-developed AI system together with the audience and examines the power structure in the digitalized world. Together, they embark on a research journey that is at once a simulation game, a test run, and a stocktaking, and devote themselves to the question of how deeply artificial intelligence intervenes in our lives. The effects of algorithmically controlled power systems are shown and questioned in a playful way. With the help of a personalized tracking system, the audience experiences in real time how an artificial intelligence predicts and evaluates its movements in space. Supposedly arbitrary machine decisions are linked to a strict system of rules in the improvised play of participants and performers. With AI, a temporary micro-society is formed - and the question of how we want to shape it.
