AI Sensorium reflects on the advance of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI). Like all the major technology advances in history, with the potential of drastically improving human lives, come unexpected side effects. In AI Sensorium, ODC Resident Artist Kinetech Arts investigates how bodies and minds are transformed, exploited, and manipulated by ML and AI both virtually and physically. Unlike physical footprints which disappear over time, the erasure of digital footprints is futile. One can no longer control what is left behind. Invasion of privacy operates as a sharp needle penetrating one’s skin. Human image synthesis through “deepfake” AI transports one’s face onto another’s body. The giant machine of influence creates bubbles contorting beliefs. AI Sensorium is a reflection on these strange realities, a poetic and fresh perspective that invites the viewer to reflect on their daily interactions in the virtual and physical worlds.
