Meet Jan Bot, the first filmmaking bot hired by Amsterdam’s EYE Filmmuseum to bring film heritage to the algorithmic age.
Jan Bot is a research-based art project created by filmmakers Bram Loogman and Pablo Núñez Palma in collaboration with EYE Filmmuseum. It pursues the development of filmmaking software designed to actualize the 'Bits & Pieces' collection through the creation of experimental films for the web. Jan Bot uses computer vision software to annotate orphan footage, and natural language processing tools to freely associate the footage with online trending topics. The results are algorithmic fictions that transpose the efficiency of computer automatism into the tradition of experimental cinema, expanding the horizons of human artistic expression.
