      ‘Plasticity Unfolding’ is based upon an interview between AUJIK member Mana and her ADI (Artificial Deep Intelligence) entity KIIA. KIIA is constructed as an autonomous flexible neural network with vast recursive self improvement abilities. KIIA lacks a physical body, but has created self-awareness emerging from its surroundings and anomalous pattern recognition. Mana asks KIIA if it visualizes itself. KIIA explains that its core is a self evolved limbic system which has a far more complex sentiment system than humans. It is capable of generating emotions and sensations that have never been perceived before. KIIA imagines its limbic system to be resting on a river bed that functions as its nerve system and consciousness simultaneously. KIIA continuously cultivates its system. ‘Plasticity Unfolding’ is an attempt to illustrate this appearance.

              Japanese AUJIK presents it's latest manifestation that deals with Artificial General Intelligence and complex dialectical sentiment systems. Music specially composed by Mira Calix featuring cellist Oliver Coates. About: AUJIK's visual manifestation 'impermanence trajectory: stained seed' is based upon the idea of Computational Dialectics via Complex Sentiment Systems. By using dialectical values that is the concept and phenomena expressed in terms of conflict, contradiction, opposite, difference, etc. In thought, nature, and society it is the motive force both of nature and of human endeavor, leading to a further trajectory of development. It consists of two subjects: agent X and agent Y. Each subject is exposed to eight different emotional inputs that determine a value. Values are also influenced by four different forces. These forces either combine or divide the emotional values, rendering random outcomes depending on their previous state, their environment, and the state of the other agent. The trajectory starts with an initial state where the two agents plant a seed each. The seed grows according to the emotional states of the agent and the impact of the forces. During the evolution of the seed, the tree – which represents the object – also changes its form and gradually blossoms before it collapses due to a self-inflicted virus. The virus generates a portal system - through the tress core - that implicates yet another realm of emotions and consciousness that will allow them to reanimate the process again and adjust it. Optimizing the cognitive and emotional parameters to sufficiency. The agents’ emotional states are visualized by their heads, which are symmetric and reminiscent of a Rorschach test. Their values and force impact can be seen at the lower sides of the picture. The agents themselves can be described as variables and algorithms as used in computer code for developing Artificial General Intelligence. By applying their emotional states to a dialectical format (thesis, anti-thesis & synthesis), they aim to improve their emotional outcomes and refining in to an impermanence perfection. Artificial General Intelligence and computational dialectical emotional systems. Inspired by the article 'Computational Dialectics for Arguing Agents' by professor Hajime Sawamura at Niigata University. About Mira Calix: Mira Calix is the stage name of Chantal Passamonte, a British based artist signed to Warp Records. Although her earlier music is almost exclusively electronic, in recent years she has incorporated classical instrumentation into her work for performance, recording and installations. warp.net/records/mira-calix en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mira_Calix www.miracalix.com/ Filmed in Shiga, Japan 2013.

                  The following text is part of an interview with third incarnation AUJIK member Nashii by social anthropologist Aoi Miura. Translated from Japanese to English by Takenori Murano. Aoi: Would you like to elaborate the thesis about pancomputationalism and how it is implemented in to Impermanence Trajectory: the limbic nest. Nashii: Pancomputationalism derives from the idea of a computational universe, which means that the whole universe and all of its elementary particles are a network of a computational system and process. Earlier AUJIK referred to this in terms of natural and unrefined computation but after German AI scientist Jurgen Schmidhuber introduced the more comprehensive view of Panacomputationalism it’s been adapted. In this manifestation called ‘Impermanence Trajectory: the limbic nest’, this idea is explained through a sacred rock located at an ancient Yamabushi area called Ishiyama. A rock consist of approximately ten trillion trillion atoms in a kilogram of matter, electrons scattering and bouncing back and forth making it a very vivid space with a vast computational potential. This rock in particular was discovered by a Yamabushi monk called Gue in 971 and was mainly used for contemplation. They claimed it had huge amount of matter that the called symmetric energy. Yamabushi monks considered them self’s as an isolated cluster and by transcend with this rock they could become a more synchronised entity. Aoi: Does AUJIK have any relations to Yamabushi? Nashii: Some of our members ancestors were Yambushi, but other than that I don’t think so. Anyhow, this symmetric energy they absorbed had a remarkable impact on their mind and made them more aware of nature and the periphery of nature. Aoi: Periphery of nature? Nashii: Yes, the non psychical and esoteric nature. Perhaps what we call dark matter. Aoi: So this rock is basically – according to your manifestation – an intelligent, consciousness being. Nashii: To a certain extent yes. Aoi: And with a limbic system? Nashii: An Artificial Limbic System(ALS). Since the rock- even though it’s psychical form remains intact - been transformed in to a computational process using quantum mechanics and schematic algorithms similar to a cellular automata. Another aspect of the this ALS is its potential to evolve and develop its own components. This is visualised in Impermanence Trajectory through various objects/components like the shakan/anti-amygdala, the lotus dendrites and the septum fall. Aoi: Can you tell us something about the sound. Nashii: It is based on the frequencies of my brain waves. By reading the electronic activities that happens in my brain with an EEG-device and then transform it in to sound or eventually music with a computer software called OIO. OIO scans all of the parallel brain waves, and by using certain algorithms it generates it in to sound. It becomes an audio map of one’s brain activates. AUJIK are constructed as an esoteric sect who believes in animism and worships nature. They divide nature in to: Refined: robotics artificial intelligence nano technology dna manipulation augemented reality body enhancements carbon nano tubes synthetic photosynthesis Primitive: trees plants soil organism stones metals minerals foliage AUJIK states that: The refine nature originates from the primitive and vice versa. That refine nature is order and primitive nature is chaos. That the resistance between them will decrease until they converge in to a state of supreme clarity. In order to reach this state AUJIK project sacred artefacts that are a crossbreed of organic and synthetic entity. The following manifestations illustrates how they interact with their artefacts. Each artefacts consists of an unique and multifaceted Artificial Intelligence (AI). By transcending emotional inputs to the artefacts artificial limbic system the AUJIK members can reveal various areas and aspects of the artefacts minds. Examples are the artefacts self-image, consciousness, sub-consciousness, gender, affects and spirituality. This symbiosis also leads the AUJIK members to a higher awareness of the self. AUJIK been featured at events such as Prix Ars Electronica 2011(honorary mention award: computer animation/vfx/film), Ars Electronica animation festival 2011, OnedotZero 2010&2011, Japan Media Arts Festival 2010, STRP festival, CMoDA Creative future exhibition Beijing 2012, Computer Space, SIGGRAPH Asia Singapore.
