Research for a movie filled with robot love

The incredibly wealthy engineer Bob falls in love with the offline Alice. What Alice does not know is that Bob participates in a pioneering experiment in which the participants upload all their experiences to create a loving AI. When Alice discovers this, she breaks the relationship and disappears without a trace. Bob must put everything on the line to find and recapture her.

This is the beginning of a film scenario that Merijn Bolink and Marc van Dijk are working on. The question of how AI will change our experience of love is central. During ROBOT LOVE the writers will be present for three days for spontaneous and planned Socratic conversations, brainstorming sessions or (private) expert meetings. They use the exhibition as a mini-residency to enrich their story.

There are no tickets available for this part.


Merijn Bolink (1967) is visual artist. His work has been shown in a.o. the Groninger Museum, the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and the Post Gallery in Los Angeles. Past years Bolink is attempting to work together with AI. Results of this could be viewed in the Galerie Ron Mandos in Amsterdam as well as in the exhibition ‘Humans Need Not Apply’ in de Science Gallery (Dublin).


Marc van Dijk (1979) is artist and writer. He is the co-founder of the Amsterdam artist-initiative Paleis van Mieris. For the newspaper Trouw and Filosofie Magazine he writes about philosophy. He often is guest lecturer at the Design Academy Eindhoven.
