Models For Environmental Literacy (2020)
In the face of climate change, large-scale computer-controlled systems, like artificial intelligence, are being deployed to control terrestrial systems. In the West is a great belief in ‘intelligent’ technology as a lifesaver. However, practice shows that the dominant AI systems lack the fundamental insights to act in an inclusive manner towards the complexity of ecological, social and environmental issues. While the imaginative and artistic possibilities for the creation of nonhuman perspectives is often overlooked. In his longterm research Tivon Rice speculates how AI’s could have alternative perceptions of an environment. 3 AI's, trained for a screenplay as the SCIENTIST, the PHILOSOPHER, and the AUTHOR, are brought together for a series of conversations, while they inhabit a series of scanned natural landscapes.
This work is presented in collaboration with FIBER; an Amsterdam based platform and festival operating at the intersection of audiovisual art, technologie, ecology and performances.
