Who is Byrke Lou?
Computers determine our future, so I wanted to know how they work. I was also curious how scientific research operates. Within physics, I have specialized in the area of complex systems such as artificial intelligence, because systems in biology, economics or physics follow the same mathematical models.
PHYSICS & ART
I investigate the mechanisms and construction of knowledge. To produce my work, I use materials such as glass and aluminum, which are used in the sciences to achieve new results. At the same time, these materials are anchored in art. I use media such as virtual reality and artificial intelligence to investigate developments in digital media.
