The bifurcation of artificial life into AI and robotics is a false
dichotomy. I seek to reconcile these competing tropes of synthetic life
into one cohesive expression of digital selfhood.
Referencing the seminal work of artists Komar & Melamid a physical
avatar has be generated and imbued with this framework of philosophical
inquiries. Referencing the flexibility of identity within the corpus of
Frida Kahlo, Orlan, Cindy Sherman and even the manifestations of Donna
Haraway’s imagined female as cyborg, I have constructed a life-form that
responds to the most basic teleology of the human biome.
Here is the examination of the design & execution of a robotic self.
Please allow me to present my latest artwork…
