IN THE WORKS...
Sublime Substrate explores our inability to comprehend the vast, abstract curtain of algorithms suspended around us. It acknowledges the charms of technologically-faciltated living, but cautions against simplistic narratives in which AI can circumvent pesky human flaws or resolve any pain point if we offer up enough data.
The project considers what privacy means in a world where algorithms construct our desires, where legacies and memories are increasingly digital; and where the mechanical gaze parses our every action. Currently being scripted as a Choose Your Own Adventure sound-experience with support from the Canada Council for the Arts.
An exhibition about the erosion of solitude from contemporary culture. Two immersive installations housed in shipping containers invited passing pedestrians to reflect on what we readily give up in pursuit of constant connectivity.
