MetadataShow full item record
Our technological environment is increasingly populated with chatbots and avatars. These conversational entities are necessary and seductive interfaces between human and virtual systems. Self, agency and identity are unsettled and made ambivalent in increasingly liminal zones of operation and interface with AI entities. Prosthetic Head is a 3D computer-generated avatar of the artist that can converse with a living person through a keyboard interface. This installation was included in an international exhibition that explored the complexities of embodiment in contemporary digital techno-scientific culture.
