1001 in 1 is an exhibition that plays with big data as if it were Big Macs. It writes using ChatGPT and renders with Midjourney. It brings artificial general intelligence in relation to custom-made search engines. It moves as fast as fast food and feels as light as Coca-Cola Light. No sugar added, just artificial sweeteners. It wants to explore and establish an attitude towards Large Language Models and Text-to-Image Generative Models while reading books and eating popcorn. 1001 in 1 was exclusively rendered into an exhibition just for one night on the 14th of October 2023 at Zentralwäscherei in Zürich. It was produced and conceptualized by Meteora++; Adil Bokhari, Miro Roman, and Agostino Nickl and would not have taken place without the help and support by Guo Zifeng and Jorge Orozco. It was curated by luck from Lathouse; Michel Kessler and Alessia Bertini. The closing act of the night was a play performed by Xlat.xo, with Lewis Beauchamp and Maurus Wirth.
1001 in 1 works fast, with the slow rituals of folklore. It plays lightly, with the gravitas of history. It sculpts characters, with the all-knowing genericness of big data.
