Interview with Geert Mul at Eye filmmuseum and his studio about the work: Databased Dialogues for Algorithmic Landscapes on the EYE film museum / Amsterdam Light Festival 2018.

In a series of artworks, Mul explores the ‘I’ and ‘the other’ in the context of technological media. Databased Dialogues for Algorithmic Landscapes was the first artwork in this series. It consists of audio samples from hundreds of Hollywood movie dialogues which contain the questions ‘Who are you?’ or ‘Who Am I ?’. and responses to those questions, for example ‘Who do you want me to be ?’ Mul constructed several dialogues from these movie text samples and placed them in computer-generated scenes of nature: floating leaves, clouds, rain, snow.
