To celebrate 40 years of making Australia’s most controversial art, theatre group Performance Space asked us to do something radical that would get them talked about in culture. But what everyone was talking about right now is AI and the threat against creative industries. So we posed the question - Does AI really have a role in the future of artistic creation?

We created the Unseen Machine, a bespoke AI platform with a twist - allowing customers to create brand-new artworks blended from 40 years of archival artworks.
With a live public event voting to decide should the machine live? or should it be destroyed?
