"The Wolf And The Lamb" is a polymorphic video originating from the Coperni FW 23 show inspired by the Jean de La Fontaine fable "Le loup et l’agneau". Starring Lila Grace Moss, it questions the relationship between humans and machines.
Directors Alexandre Silberstein and Florent Canale brought this concept to life with the collaboration of Everest Lab and Coperni. They shaped a timeless procedural generative piece comprising several scenarios meticulously but randomly chosen by a host machine.
Starting September 21st 2023, this piece will run continuously for six months in real time on Epic games Unreal Engine and play ever changing 40 seconds stories based on multiple choices of sets, scenarios, looks from Coperni’s collection shaping a new form each time. No less than 320,000 versions will be generated and streamed on a dedicated website and Coperni’s Youtube channel.
The mesmerizing music composed by Anomaly Spectre accompanies the stories with subtle layers of depth created from three main tracks that have been decomposed in dozen of different versions to follow the generative nature of the piece.
The randomly appearing voiceover follows the same principles. New texts have been generated by prompting Chat Gpt to make different versions of the original fable and are read by an Ai generated voice.
The temporality experienced during the viewing are set to Paris time zone. The general lighting of the scenes will be synchronized accordingly emphasizing the real time aspect of the piece.
"The Wolf And The Lamb" is a constant flow of materials, data, algorithms that attempt to represent a current of possibilities, changing throughout its flow, its evolution. By rewriting one of the most popular French fables we are looking for a better balance between the wolf and the lamb allowing everyone to interpret the relationship between humans and technology
