As with every January since 2017, Kode9 will play all night with multiple screenings of Lawrence Lek's new film "Aidol" playing in The Zone.
Lawrence Lek - "Aidol"
AIDOL is a new feature-length film. Featuring a score written and orchestrated by the artist, this computer-generated fantasy tells the story of a fading superstar, Diva, who enlists an aspiring AI songwriter to mount a comeback performance at the 2065 eSports Olympic finale. Set in a smoke-and-mirrors realm of fantastical architecture, sentient drones and snow-deluged jungles, AIDOL revolves around the long and complex struggle between humanity and Artificial Intelligence. Fame - in all its allure and emptiness - is set against the bigger contradictions of a post-AI world, a world where originality is sometimes no more than an algorithmic trick and where machines have the capacity for love and suffering.
AIDOL - 83mins - 22.30 / 00:00 / 01:30
