From our curator:

“Many artists today choose to question and subvert popular narratives of AI, which are typically located in some dystopian future, in order to help us better see and understand the AI that is already here, embedded in everyday mundane interactions and bureaucratic systems. These counter-narratives lend some intelligibility to otherwise opaque and incomprehensible processes that are ultimately far more insidious, and present a greater threat, than a robot uprising.”
