IA — SURVEILLANCE — FICTION
In front of a beach that is filmed live by a Webcam, an artificial voice recites a text. The voice narrates in the first person a fiction about an artificial intelligence used to monitor the landscape. Having become conscious enough to doubt, she questions her own logic and thoughts but also her working conditions, sometimes bringing her close to burn out. Using irony, the play questions what we think of artificial intelligence and its impact on humans.
Thierry Fournier, plastic artist and exhibition curator
