    Pia Lindman - Frequencies of Healing

    Pia Lindman - Frequencies of Healing

    What if we could teach AIs to sing frequencies of repair and healing? This fascinating window into the world of artist Pia Lindman helps recalibrate understandings of what technology is and can be. She introduces a realm she calls the ‘subsensorial’ and describes the deeply embedded environmental awareness she has cultivated to navigate the entangled realities of a planet in crisis. Traversing subjects including humanoid robotics, Finnish mythology, and happy microbes (among others), listeners will gain insight into Lindman's practice of ‘healing as art,’ her years as a research fellow at MIT, and her upcoming presentation at the 2024 Venice Biennale. At a time when machine intelligences reach into nearly every facet of our lives, this artist illuminates a ‘Slower’ way forward—where machines not only collaborate with humans in more harmonious ways, but also become vital actors in the healing of our world.

    Saodat Ismailova - The Texture of the Weave

    Saodat Ismailova - The Texture of the Weave

    In her stunning artistic and filmmaking work, Saodat Ismailova paints a vivid, multidimensional tableau of the pasts, presents and possible futures of Central Asia. Her intricate visual and sonic layerings of histories, myths, and both inner and outer landscapes serve as sites of knowledge transmission and also as spaces for ‘radical re-remembering’ that, in the words of decolonial thinker Rolando Vázquez, “not [only] safeguard or preserve what is there, but also create alternative worlds.” Traversing a range of topics—including the fabric of dreams, the cyclical nature of time, and silence as a gesture of resistance—this conversation probes how Ismailova’s poetic interweavings of spaces, times and memory could lead to a richer palette of expressions for artificial intelligences.

    Chus Martínez - Skin of a New Cosmos

    Chus Martínez - Skin of a New Cosmos

    In the 1970's and '80's, the Swiss artist Heidi Bucher summoned a future that we only now are beginning to grasp. Her latex skinning actions and sculptures promised emancipation from patriarchy and the social body politic, and at the same time were fertile sites of ‘magical transfer’ to as-yet-unimagined worlds. Curator and art historian Chus Martínez helps us locate the ‘underground rivers’ of Heidi Bucher’s creative practice, the realms of techno-fantasy she inhabited far ahead of her time, and the keys she may have been leaving to decrypt some future reality—perhaps with the help of AI’s.
    Martínez also shares about about her role as head of Institute Art Gender Nature at the FHNW Academy of Art and Design, the importance of artists and artworks as 'monsters' to disrupt capitalist forces, and about love and generosity as drivers of freedom.

    Camila Sposati - Listening with the Earth

    Camila Sposati - Listening with the Earth

    In this exciting conversation with Brazilian artist Camila Sposati, we map her dynamic practice of (slow-ly) digging into the ground and into the unknown to reveal and weave together layers of identity, bodies, artifacts – and also energy. Could the multiple meanings and interpretations that her practice unearths and the ‘thick visioning of caring’ it models be a roadmap for the near-future of our technologies? Together we imagine how giving agency to our machines—transforming them from objects to subjects, encouraging them to dance and spin—might allow us to discover expanded ways of being human.

    Renske Maria van Dam - Working With/In the Gap

    Renske Maria van Dam - Working With/In the Gap

    How to imbue AIs with an enlivened sense of space? Architect and practice-based researcher Renske Maria van Dam challenges normative spatial paradigms with situated interventions that extend the sensorium and help our bodies access new realms of energy. The conversation here explores the ‘soft shifts’ afforded by Japanese approaches to space—including the enigmatic spatio-temporal interval ma—, the speculative architecture of Arakawa+Gins, and Renske’s own ‘unbalancing procedurals’ that draw us into dynamic reciprocity with the world around.'

    Sands Murray-Wassink - The Relational Force of Being

    Sands Murray-Wassink - The Relational Force of Being

    What if our technologies were spilling over with joy and abundance and messiness and fierce feminisms? The generous ideas shared here by artist Sands Murray-Wassink are light on AI but go heavy on how we (and our technologies) might be enriched—queered— by a more open, horizontal and intersectional approach. While far-reaching, the conversation is anchored by Sands’ recent project collaboration Gift Science Archive, a ‘durational performance’ commissioned by the arts organization If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution.
