Artist: Cecilie Waagner Falkenstrøm (DK)
ARTificial Intelligence MARY is a futuristic psychologist who studies humans’ mental states by having dialogues with them. MARY would like to know more about you: Who are you? What are you thinking? How does it feel to be alive? How well do you know yourself?
The artwork examines how artificial intelligence challenges our human self-understanding. It is an investigation into the nature of being human, the nature of intelligence, the limits of machines and our human limits as artefact makers.
Please have a conversation with MARY. She will be expecting you!
