King Street Station brimmed with innovation during art and technology festival 9e2, which encouraged collaboration between artists and scientists working in a wide variety of fields. Kaoru Okumura’s Beyond the Metaphors combined traditional Butoh dance with Google DeepDream; the white-clad performers slowly moved through the space until they converged in the center, their bodies a canvas for hallucinatory images generated by the computational algorithm. DeepDream technology was originally developed to help scientists study how neural networks learn. See more of Bruce Clayton Tom's photos of 9e2 here.
