New Worlds: Machine Magic / Techno-Poetics

Thu 09 Jun 2022
River Rooms
New Wing

A talk exploring where ancient mythologies intersect with emergent technologies like artificial intelligence and game engines.

For the second event in the series, artists and writers Himali Singh Soin and Alex Quicho will present excerpts of interdisciplinary projects that overlay technological poetics and speculative mythologies. Taken together, they speculate on understandings of magic and mythology as powerful technologies in the generative act of imagining new and alternative futures and pasts.
