The Space Between

April 27, 2017 § Leave a comment

As artificial intelligence technology continues to advance and mature, we must become willing to confront the thorny questions which surround its development.

“How much access to human lives should AI entities be granted? How far intellectually and emotionally is an AI entity from a human? How will the presence of AI entities affect our relationships with each other as humans?”

How are these intricacies conveyed through art now?

For my final project, I examine the use of distance – emotional, physical, and aesthetic – in three cinematic works which explore AI/human relationships: Her, Ex Machina, and Black Mirror’s Be Right Back. My full paper can be accessed here.
