As AI – Artificial Intelligence – hits the news, infiltrates daily life and grows ever more sophisticated, #SoftLove explores how far it could go towards being human, even feeling that most instinctive of emotions: love. And what would machine love look like?
Inspired by Spike Jonze’s 2013 movie Her, starring Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson, and based on the novel Soft Love by Eric Sadin, #Softlove is a live performance with stunning live 3D motion capture film. It follows a day in the life of a woman whose personal assistant falls in love with her. Funny and touching by turns, it asks who’s really in control of this relationship and how close to human love can machine love get.
