Gentle Bot Seeks Same | Liane Décary-Chen


Residency from January 12th to February 22th, 2021
At Ada X

As part of its Slow Tech program, Ada X welcomes artist Liane Décary-Chen in residence from January 12 to February 22, 2021.

Exploring accessible tools for AI computing such as deep fake generators and AI libraries, Liane will work towards developing a theoretical computational model to imagine AI beings capable of introspection and vulnerability.

Rather than a single output, she will develop educational and mediation tools to make more accessible the concepts she’s working with, in a playful and performative way. Through social media performances and digital zine making, she hopes to allow as many people as possible to participate in this conversation.
