ArtScience on Screen explores the intersection between art and science using moving image, video and film. In a rolling programme, ArtScience on Screen features a range of exciting filmmakers and artists from Singapore and beyond, at various stages of their careers.  

Presentations will include solo showcases of artists’ moving image work, curated programmes of film exploring specific artscience themes, feature length film screenings, multi-screen presentations and creative documentaries that introduce key practitioners and methods in the field.

ArtScience on Screen forms the backbone of the museum’s dedicated film programming, and is part of Marina Bay Sands’ ongoing commitment to the local and international film culture and community.

ArtScience on Screen: I Am Not A Robot

From 13 Sep | 10.00am-7:00pm (on loop)
Expression Gallery, Level 4 | Free admission

In the future how will we perceive ourselves in relation to the beings that surround us?

Will we still feel a sense of belonging based on gender, religious, ethnic or social groupings? Or will we retune our perceptive systems to understand each other as belonging to the tribe of humans, automatons or synthetic intelligent beings?

Will we embrace these differences or will we still perceive a threat in the ‘other’- trapped in a paranoid state of distrust? And when the opportunity arises for a fertile future will we be able to act or will our fearful paralysis hold us back? 

In this short film programme, three artists and film-makers from Africa, United States and the Middle East explore the relationships that might exist between beings in tomorrow’s world. Films include: Rajeev Dassani and Elan Dassani Seam, Fadi Baki Fdz, Last Days of the Man of Tomorrow and Wanuri Kahiu, Pumzi.

Pumzi and Last Days of the Man of Tomorrow were first screened by Cinema Akil for Global Art Forum: I Am Not A Robot in Dubai, March 2018.

This is a programme of Global Art Forum: I Am Not A Robot | Singapore, presented by ArtScience Museum in collaboration with Art Dubai.
