Die interaktive Installation „Augenblick“  in der Moritzburg wird zum aktiven Teil der Eröffnungsveranstaltung. Das Geschehen auf der Bühne wird live gefilmt und in einen Supercomputer eingespeist, der mit einer Großleinwand verbunden ist. Dadurch gleicht die KI-Transformation einer aktiven, künstlerischen Erkundung der Realität und ermöglicht eine neue Form des kreativen Zusammenspiels zwischen Mensch und Maschine.
