Event details

Prostheses without bodies, sensory gaps of assistive technologies, ordinary cyborgs, the sound of deafness. Dataset outliers, discrimination, linear regression and gradient descents. Choreographies of power, human-machine configurations, dances of aesthetics, powers of othering. There are links to be made and implications to be unravelled, ecosystems to be mapped and techno-corporeal experimentation to be performed, if one’s aim is to unfold expressions of power today. Because the relation between AI and the body is multiple, pluripotent, scattered and fragmented, what is needed is artistic and analytical methods that are equally manifold, disordered and splintered. These, perhaps, may yield insight into the radical and complex power of expression of bodies learning at the edge of experience.

This event is part of C-DaRE's The body and AI series, will combine an informal, historically-informed review of some artworks and performances by Marco spanning the past ten years with a semi-improvised conversation with Teoma Naccarato where they will try to navigate questions of aesthetics, computation, movement, agency and experience. Ample space for conversation with the audience will be ensured.
