We want machines to learn how we and our environment work. Tons of real life data in digitised, machine-parsable form are pushed into systems to train them to predict and classify reality. The installation shows a system that learns to balance. It has to deal directly with real world data and the physical law of gravity. Analysing the world without loss of information is crucial for the quality of the outcome. Seeing the machine’s struggling in physical space lets us experience failure and success, but also leads to the thought of looking at balancing as a game that we play our whole life to reach satisfaction for us and others in almost every aspect of life.
