One of the most exciting components of the current Dreamlands show at the Whitney Museum is Terence Broad’s autoencoding of the film Blade Runner. An extension of Broad’s autoencoding works in which a computer watching reconstructs through what roughly amounts to artificial memory, his Blade Runner version is a particularly potent expression of the movie’s underlying themes of AI. In some ways, the visualized autoencoding portents the projection of the incipient machine soul, like the foggy memory of an infant human.
