ArtsDistrict Brooklyn, an immersive and experiential arts venue, just celebrated the US premiere of "Limitless AI" by internationally-renowned artists Ferdi & Eylul Alici of Ouchhh Studio (Istanbul), creators of the award-winning 2018 global sensation, "Poetic AI," which was seen by 1 million visitors at Atelier des Lumières in Paris. For AD/BK, the artist couple has reimagined and expanded their original work as "Limitless AI," a 70-minute show, and for the first time, united the pieces with a narrative story consisting of five chapters, including "Poetic AI."

Created from vast datasets of painting, science, and nature that were fed into an artificial intelligence algorithm that taught itself to create new works derived from those sources - 15 billion Leonardo da Vinci paintings and brushstrokes; millions of physics textbooks from Galileo to Stephen Hawking; and real-time depiction of a live musician's brainwaves as they emotionally respond to their own music - "Limitless AI" is presented as a 10,000 square-foot immersive experience and feature over 70 projectors by Barco, cutting-edge sound design by Meyer Sound, and a live musical performance at every show.

Additionally, as part of the July venue opening, AD/BK is featuring the US premiere of "Flight" and "Séance," the deeply intense, immersive, audio experiences that blend theatre, technology, and 360-degree sound. Created for thrill-seekers and novices alike by Darkfield (London), "Flight" and "Séance" are presented in complete darkness, inside customized 40-foot shipping containers, and have played to sold-out houses in the UK, Australia, Mexico, and South Korea.

AD/BK is not only a new arts home rooted in Brooklyn, NY, but AD/BK allows audiences to cross the analog/digital divide with collective experiences - unmediated by goggles or glasses - with original programming and curated content focused on immersive media across art, technology, science, music, film, live entertainment and more. The AD/BK 25,000 square-foot footprint will also house a daytime/pre-show café with free Wi-Fi, open to area residents and visitors, and an open-air patio space with outdoor seating. An NFT gallery with works for sale from the mainstage show is also planned as part of the launch of the venue.
