Cathexis is a collaboration with the Scottish electronic musician Christ. and cognitive neuroscientist at Stockholm University.
The concept of the film is how Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) transcends human emotions.
In the video, several examples of this are manifested by a fictitious esoteric group called AUJIK.
This project was funded by the Swedish Artists Granting Committee and the Helge Ax Foundation: his Johnsons.
All music by Christ.
