Filmoteka Muzeum

Buttes Monteaux 3 is a stroll through a virtual edifice. Norman Leto develops here his interest in the computer-based construction of virtual worlds, blending the real and the imaginary. The interiors of the building merge hotel, exhibition and residential functions and have been modelled on those which exist in reality.

However, among real objects there are some that belong exclusively to the virtual world. Sterile hotel lavatories host small shapes – the so-called “delegates”, i.e. units of artificial intelligence whose computer-controlled movements correspond to social processes translated to the language of mathematics. Some of the individuals in the group of “delegates”, however, are not fit to live in society – they function against the mathematical rules and generate chaos within the community.
