LUCE et Studio and the Mingei Museum


Willem Deisinger, Sarah Hodgson, Lake, Hanna Palmer, Jessica Rousseau and a cast of machines.

This exhibition brings together three works by emerging artists who considering AI and machine learning technology. These technologies are not central to any of the artists practice, so they bring a curiosity of artists trying to understand the space that AI and ML are occupying in our culture. While image generation is one of the most high-profile accomplishments in recent AI press, language and dialogue remain one of the most widespread applications of these technologies. Customer service chatbots and personal assistants in our mobile devices engage with us through language on a daily basis, and we likely consume an increasing amount of writing of all kinds produced by machines. As they wander the edges of the rapidly expanding geography of synthetic intelligence, these art works explore the technologies clumsy and awkward growth while also trying to tease out something deeper at work inside the machine.

In depth ideas about art and the digital economy

The Digital Economies Reader was an evolving dossier produced over the course of the Digital Economies Lab. Lead writer, Matthew Braga, was embedded with the DEL in Ottawa for its kick-off and followed along with the members and their projects as they unfolded over the course of the lab. The Reader also includes reading recommendations and intersecting perspectives from beyond the lab.
