Build the Love You Deserve is a performance series centered on the semi-fictional relationship between the artist Fei Liu and her do-it-yourself robotic boyfriend, Gabriel2052. Based on the artist’s growing infatuation with a non-humanoid robot, the performance highlights the emotional, societal, and technical hurdles she must overcome to actualize their love. Could the organic and fickle language of love truly be spoken between human and machine? The artist posits that we should try to engage in such a translation—that perhaps the end goal isn't just to find a replacement, but a better understanding of ourselves
Forging the Gods, curated by Julia Kaganskiy offers us new metaphors for thinking about the nature of intelligence, the kind of intelligent entities we might want to forge in the future, and the trappings of the limited ‘artificial intelligence’ that is increasingly shaping our world today. Participating artists include Zach Blas and Jemima Wyman, Peter Burr, Stephanie Dinkins, Lawrence Lek, Lauren McCarthy, Anna Ridler, Jenna Sutela, Theo Triantafyllidis, and Pinar Yoldas.
