Cities Tango : Leicester+Dubai
1, October 2021 - 31, March 2022


Artificial intelligence reveals another place to the audience, creating an indelible link between Leicester & Dubai

In this installation by Ernesto Edmonds, artificial intelligence is used to reveal another place to the audience, creating an indelible link between Leicester (LCB Depot) and Dubai.

Cities Tango displays images of and from each location. Images are dynamically revealed within an otherwise abstract structure. A set of local photographs are interlaced with colour stripes and shown in the other city. Each city, and the people in them, interact with one another across time zones. The colours, stripes and timings used are driven by movements at each location. Immediate responses to rapid movement are seen by the audience in each location. In each place there is a screen which is interactive, using a computer and camera, showing an ever-changing blend of colour bands and images from the other city (connected over the Internet). A second, urban, screen in each city shows that location’s Cities Tango images.
