Lightbox Gallery Talk: Artificial Intelligence in Art and Design

Video still of Nobody’s Listening, by Sarah Newman and Rachel Kalmar.

Gallery Talk

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street
Cambridge MA

Sarah Newman, creative researcher at metaLab (at) Harvard and Rachel Kalmar, data scientist at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society, will give today’s gallery talk.

Their project Nobody’s Listening draws on a database of secrets collected through interactive art installations over the past year. The work expresses human secrets through overlapping computer voices and a visual projection. Why do we trust our phones and computers? Where does the physical self end and the digital self begin? The playful installation explores our intimate but dubious relationship to machines and reflects back to us what makes us human.

Free with museums admission. This talk is limited to 15 people and tickets are required. Ten minutes before the talk, tickets will become available at the admissions desk.

Please meet in the Calderwood Courtyard, in front of the digital screens between the shop and the admissions desk. Museums staff will be on hand to collect tickets.
