workshop with Anna Dumitriu and Alex May
Dumitriu and May will lead a practical and theoretical workshop about their project “ArchaeaBot: A Post Singularity and Post Climate Change Life-form”. This underwater robotic installation explores what ‘life’ might mean in a post singularity, post climate change future, and is based on new research about archaea (the oldest life forms on the planet) combined with the latest innovations in machine learning & artificial intelligence.
The artists will explain the research behind the project and explain some of the practical issues involved in constructing and programming the work, with opportunities for hands on activities, and discussion.
The workshop will be in English.
