Distant Arcades: MUTEK Montreal

This exhibition premieres my newest project: “To the Farther” (2020) is a song that combines the aesthetics of ASMR with electronic music. This is part of my ongoing project to produce an ASMRtronica album.  My participation in this exhibition as part of the 2020 Amplify D.A.I. cohort – AMPLIFY D.A.I is an initiative of the British Council in partnership with MUTEK Montréal, MUTEK Buenos Aires and Somerset House Studios in the UK. The programme is supported by Canada Council for the Arts and Fundación Williams.

Forum on current practices in digital creation

Automation Rules Everything Around Me
Panel – Friday April 13, 2018 1:30pm

Chatter about AI and machine learning is ubiquitous, but are we mindful of how much automation shapes our experience of the world? Services like Uber offer convenience, but their ‘disruption’ throws labour and legislation paradigms into turmoil. Against this backdrop of techno-solutionism and anxiety, algorithms have become a key subject of artistic investigation — and creators have been exploring automation through robotics for decades. Starting with ‘the artist’s toolkit’ and working outwards to bigger culture machinations, this session will identify both possibilities and peril.
