Refik Anadol is honored to create a poetic, immersive, and multisensory artwork to commemorate the 750th death anniversary of one of the greatest poets and philosophers in human history. Inspired by Rumi’s multilayered philosophical lens through which he interpreted life and the universe, Rumi Dreams is an AI-based spectacle of light and motion that animates a vast dataset of precious Rumi archives. This dataset, collected with the generous help of Konya Metropolitan Municipality, includes scripts of Masnavi in 19 different languages, more than 180,000 images of dervish lodges, ancient book pages, and documents, and recordings of Sufi music and performances. Anadol and his team process this interdisciplinary dataset that is emblematic of Rumi’s worldview though machine learning algorithms. The resulting data universe becomes the building blocks of machine-generated Rumi Dreams, a unique perspective from which to view Rumi’s poetic universe on an unprecedented scale. Generating a multisensory dynamic performance, Rumi Dreams is a mesmerizing artistic expression of the convergence between the meaning(s) of light, knowledge, and movement, encouraging you to find “your light that lights the world.” “Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.” Rumi
