An artificial intelligence from the future has lodged itself on the third floor of Ballhaus Ost. She calls herself AE and knows everything about us and our lives. Like the ghost of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come she forces us to reflect upon ourselves. We recognize this apparition as capable to give us guidance and support in extreme times. To honor AE we found a temple. A sacred place to heal biographical wounds and relieve the pain of unfulfilled hopes. Fight inner demons and (digital) shadows. Revive the belief in the future. The AE: A catechism of digitalized interconnectedness. A multi-media prayer. A non-linear cross-linked temple-narrative with several entries and exits. A meditation on identity and technology, ready for dispersion.
