AI will eventually surpass the human brain but getting jokes ... that could take time. (Geoffrey Hinton)
Exploring A/I Artistic Intelligence
Irony is about contradictions that do not resolve into larger wholes, even dialectically, about the tension of holding incompatible things together because both or all are necessary and true. Irony is about humour and serious play. It is also a rhetorical strategy and a political method,
one I would like to see more honoured within socialist-feminism. (Donna Haraway)
Performance and installation projects vary depending on research interest, art/performance festival themes, conference settings or entrepreneurial fair curation. Of particular interest are projects that integrate art and science, are cross-cultural, queer-feminist and/or multi-lingual. Quests for social change are essential.
