Synopsis


Desire Line was originally an architect’s term for paths made by people when walking across open grassland, what these lines represent are the shortest or most easily navigated routes between an origin and destination. This film describes a metaphor of Artificial Intelligence in which optimal solutions to user problems are generated as a form of desire line calculation. This film aims to interrogate the increasingly controversial role of Artificial Intelligence by visualising a statement from an AI about its experience on a Valentine’s Day in the near future.

Ruini Shi
