Seven Stories of Mellonopolis

Mellonopolis的七个故事 Seven Stories of Mellonopolis

Studio Forage, ALINE Studio

 

这是一个关于未来城市及其智慧市民的故事。Mellonopolis的七个故事展示了一系列推测情境:在人工智能城市中,人类为了满足自己的个人利益,通过各种方法和行为来对抗技术。作品主题回应了策展人提出的AI——智慧城市概念的主要驱动力——如何影响未来市民、社区、个人和群众行为、设计实践以及其他更广泛的群体。对此我们没有答案,尽管其他人可能也会谈论,但他们也并不清楚。

 

我们所知道的是,人类非常聪明。他们可以发挥创造性和适应性,使系统为他们工作,并找到方法战胜机器。这既不是宏伟乌托邦,也不是反乌托邦。相反,它描绘了平凡的日常现实,展示了人性化的普通人如何找到方法,在看似复杂而实则天真的人工智能城市中获得他们想要的东西。

 

尽管AI已成为我们生活的一部分,但人工智能的普及仍前路漫漫。因此,该项目邀请观众思考,在不那么智能的智慧城市中,生活会是什么样子。此外,该项目还对策展团队提出的各种讨论要点做出了回应,包括新技术如何改变人们的行为,以及社区如何重新适应科技。

 

我们想知道,明天的城市是否都一样。科技城市是否沿用市政当局之间共享的架构、算法和全球城市通用的技术解决方案?我们人类是否能找到方法打破这一系统,使之为己所用,并改变其身份?

 

Mellonopolis中展示的居民故事,包括假装成小孩子以求更快地过马路,将鸽子伪装成乌鸦以避免罚款等。本项目通过这些故事,向观众展示这个并不遥远的智慧城市中的讽刺性。城市可能很智慧,但城市的居民总是更有智慧,即所谓道高一尺,魔高一丈。

 

This is a story of a near-future city and its cunning inhabitants. Seven Stories of Mellonopolis presents a series of speculative situations in which AI could be implemented in cities and humans may develop cunning methods and behaviors to subvert this technology for their own individual self-interest. This theme is prompted from the curator’s enquiry into how AI (a predominate enabler of the smart city concept) will affect citizens, communities, behaviors of individuals and masses, design practices, and wider groups in the future. We simply do not know. And despite what others may say, neither do they.

 

What we do know, is that humans will be cunning. They will be creative and adaptive. They will make systems work for them and find ways to beat the machine. This is neither a grand utopian or dystopian vision of the future. Instead, it is a portrait of the banal, everyday reality of how normal people with human nature find ways to get what they want in a city augmented with sophisticated yet ultimately naive artificial intelligence.

 

With AI already a part of our lives, but general artificial intelligence a long way off, the project invites the audience to question what life may be like in the not quite smart enough, smart city. Furthermore, the project responds to a variety of discussion points proposed by the curatorial team, including how the new technology will change people’s behaviors as well as how communities will re-appropriate technology.

 

We wonder if the cities of tomorrow will all be the same. Will technology take the same route as identical architecture, algorithms shared between municipalities and technological solutions integrated across global cities? Or will we humans find ways to break the system – to make it our own and transform its identity?

 

From pretending to be a child to cross the road quicker to disguising pigeons as crows to avoid paying a fine, we invite you to meet the residents of Mellonopolis and discover their mischievous relationship in the smart city of the not too distant future. The city may be smart, but the residents will always be smarter.
