Mechanical Hallucinations: Coral » is one of the most important works in the history of digital art. At the crossroads of art, science and technology, this three-dimensional work presented for the first time on the beach of the Faena Hotel during Art Basel Week 2021, in Miami, combines data science, digital painting , audio, performance and immersive installation.

It is the result of a permanent research on the aesthetics of information, based on the collective visual memory of the urban and natural environment. Refik Anadol and his team, collected 300 million data points focused on nature-related themes, used 1,742,772 coral images from publicly available social media platforms and processed them with machine learning classification models.

Moreover, it is the artist’s first work created on the Algorand blockchain, which is carbon negative.
