AI The End | Gina Hara

Participants

Residency from October, 19th to December, 13th 2021
At Ada X + Algora Lab
Public presentation on Thursday, December 9th

Since the beginning of the pandemic, social AIs have been increasingly stepping up to offer companionship and mental-health help online. In her residency, Gina Hara sets out to draw a parallel between MC singleplayer gameplay and life during lockdown, speculating toward a future where AI becomes the ultimate option for human companionship. Minecraft will be used as a stage for her analytical and experimental play practice. This process and its emerging narrative will be documented and presented in the form of a machinima short film at the end of the residency.
