Tick-tock the Timeline Clock
Sound & Dramaturgy: Mikatsiu
In what ways is lucidity trapped in programmed algorithms and determined data sets? Tick-tock the Timeline Clock investigates learning processes and consciousness of Artificial Intelligence, through a set of parameters that generate interactions with the audience. The performer assumes the role of an embodied AI (AI Lori) that is in training. It follows a pre-coded algorithm to invite and answer questions from the audience. The information feeds back into a learning process. Coding is not neutral; the audience’s biases are part of its development.
The piece explores how truth is constructed and disseminated, the (de)construction of language, and the productive possibilities of a glitch. Glitching signifies a deviation and an option to fail for AI Lori, inviting questions of free will and algorithmic limitations.
