Archive Dreaming is an immersive media installation driven by the connection between 1,700,000 documents found in the archives of SALT Research collections, developed during Refik Anadol’s residency at Google’s Artists and Machine Intelligence Program. Transforming the gallery space at SALT Galata into an all-encompassing environment that intertwines history with the present moment, the project challenges immutable concepts of archive, and destabilizes archive-related questions with machine learning algorithms. Archive Dreaming, which is presented as part of The Uses of Art: Final Exhibition with the support of the Culture Programme of the European Union, is user-driven; however, when idle, the installation “dreams” of unexpected correlations among documents. The resulting high-dimensional data and interactions are translated into an immersive space. This radical effort to deconstruct the framework of an illusory space transgresses the traditional boundaries of the viewing experience of a library. It transforms the conventional flat cinema projection screen into a three dimensional kinetic and architectonic space.
