A collision of art, music and technology explores the relationship between humans and the universe, Cheng Yuezhu reports in Nanjing. 

In the 1997 sci-fi film Contact, the protagonist Ellie Arroway takes a glimpse of the universe, revealing the paradoxical insignificance and rarity of human existence.

Several days ago, radio waves from the cosmos were detected in Canada-much like in the movie-indicating the possibility that human beings may not be alone in the vast universe.

Echoing the theme of extraterrestrial contact, the Cosmic AI exhibition, presented by the creative arts hub TRU-M, opened in the Jiangbei New Area of Nanjing, Jiangsu province, on Saturday. It offers visitors the chance to establish a connection with the cosmos.

The show is the Asia premiere of Ouchhh, a Turkish multidisciplinary new media studio specializing in artificial intelligence, data-driven artworks and public art. The studio has won a number of awards, including the Red Dot Award. Its previous exhibition, Poetic AI, in Paris attracted 65,000 visitors in the first 10 days and 1 million visitors in nine months.
