Machines Should Think - Music Video

What do you do when the machines take over? Listen, take a walk, dance or just relax?

Here is an music video made from four animated illustrations exploring what happens to peoples leisure time after AI. Made for an exhibition looking at the digitalisastion of the art world and synthestic aesthetics.

The titles are inspired by the 1967 film "Paperwork Explosion” by Jim Henson. A promotional film for IBM’s new Magnetic Tape Selectric Typewriter. In the film people proclaim

“Machines should work; people should think”
