The Feral is a collective artwork at the scale of a landscape - a place of learning for an artificial intelligence in charge of creating a film. This environment, as it grows, is progressively populated and transformed by the interventions of artists invited to feed its learning, as many co-authors of this «concrete fiction» for the next 1000 years.
The Feral is deployed on a site spanning several hectares at the top of a hill, within the Millevaches Plateau Regional Natural Park in France. This site aims to gradually expand, enlarging the learning ground for the artificial intelligence over the years. The previously clear-cut parcels, exploited by the timber industry, will be replanted, diversified, and preserved.
The Institute is a research and education platform that unfolds the concrete concepts and experiences developed within The Feral, along with their philosophical, technological, and political implications. It is structured around three axes: an artist and researcher residency program, an online school, and an annual publication.
The Feral is an artistic, educational, and environmental project led by the non-profit organization 3024, based on an original idea by artists Fabien Giraud & Raphaël Siboni.
