Large Nature Model — Living Art
A/V Performance, Installation
San Jose, CA
18 Mar 24 - 22 Mar 24

After a stunning premiere at the World Economic Forum 2024 in Davos, immersive artworks based on Refik Anadol Studio’s Large Nature Model came to the U.S. for the first time at NVIDIA GTC 2024. Offering a deep dive into the synergy between AI and the natural world, Anadol presented a multisensory work, “Large Nature Model: A Living Archive.”

Situated prominently on the main concourse of the San Jose Convention Center, where the global AI event took place in March 2024, “Large Nature Model: A Living Archive” immersed attendees in an unprecedented digital portrayal of Earth’s ecosystems. The scenes were rendered, realtime, in breathtaking clarity across 16k resolution screens with a total output of 50 million pixels just before CEO Jensen Huang’s Keynote to 18.000 attendees.
Fueled by NVIDIA’s advanced AI technology, including powerful DGX A100 stations and high-performance GPUs, the exhibition offered a captivating journey through our planet’s ecosystems with stunning visuals, sounds and scents.

Refik Anadol, recognized by The Economist as “the artist of the moment,” has emerged as a key figure in AI art. His work, notable for its use of data and machine learning, places him at the forefront of a generation pushing the boundaries between technology, interdisciplinary research and aesthetics. Anadol’s influence reflects a wider movement in the art world towards embracing digital innovation, setting new precedents in how art is created and experienced.
