Loving Grace Part One: An Agile Retrospective
Loving Grace Part One is an interactive art installation initially developed for FutureSync in June 2017. It explores how artificial intelligences interpret, understand and interact with human behaviour by creating a simulacra of the audience as they arrive. The simulacra then go on to invade the rest of the event by infecting other exhibits, taking over social media feeds and reacting to the mood of the day. This talk will focus on the agile processes and methodologies used to create the work, and reflects on their effectiveness. It will discuss interdisciplinary influences on technology, art and design, and It will go into detail of each of the project’s technological elements and human stories – giving the audience an insight into delivering a complex data driven artwork.
