Lecture Performance:

Humanized Machine / Machinized Human: The Aesthetics of the Paradox 

Kawita Vatanajyankur and Pat Pataranutaporn

Friday 16 December, 2022, 17.30 – 19.00 hrs.
Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC), Fl.6, Friends of BACC room

In reflections of ‘Voice of the Oppressed’, a live performance by Kawita Vatanajyankur where her body’s state was in an ongoing battle to survive by dissolving the polluted gun powder and its smoke inside the glass box with clear water, this lecture performance is a conversation between the 2 collaborators; the artist and technologist who created the work. The conversation is focused on their AI collaborators ‘Kawitash 1’ and ‘Kawitash 2’ and their poetic arguments. Pat Pataranutaporn will reveal the AI generating process and guide audience into a closer look of the humanization of the machines through AI’s deep learning in this accelerating era of technological advancement. The collaborators will then discuss the dehumanization of humans through a ‘mental control’ via technological devices and platforms where their mental state becomes machinized and turned into a form of labor (mental-machine). This lecture performance with a video essay constructed with collages of the AI’s thoughts is an ongoing debate that raises an important question; how the artistic explorations seek for ways towards the humans-AI symbiosis and for what it means to be humanized.

The performance will be in English with no Thai translation.

No pre-registration required.
