THE FIGHT OF THE CENTURY HAS NOT TAKE PLACE... is a video that takes inspiration from the 1970 documentary "The SuperFight - Ali vs. Marciano", which is centered around a match between two American boxing champions, in which the winner will be determined by a machine... Using data analysis of the two boxers, Hank Kaplan (the technical director of this project) tries to determine, with the use of a computer, who will win this boxing match... This computer simulation has led to a "fiction documentary" about the meeting of two of the biggest boxing stars, as well as to this project of a "real" fight of the century... unfortunately, Marciano dies in a plane crash, and the fight of the century does not take place! And so I have used only fragments of this match simulation (filmed and choreographed), the length of one round: several furtive actions that were "calculated" by a computer to represent only computer-generated traces, in the form of ASCII encoding...
