The making of a feminist

Home >> Portfolio >> Audio-Visual Productions >> The making of a feminist

The making of a feminist is inspired by the complex entanglement of human and computer ‘intelligence’ in a time of crisis, in collaboration with Improviser Maria Sappho and Prof. Dubravka Pokrajac based at the University of Aberdeen.

In a world designed for men, data bias is heightened in times of conflict, natural disasters and pandemics.

The intelligence of a gender imbalanced society, whose logic is intrinsically informing the ‘intelligence’ of our computer algorithms, only amplify these biases.

My recent collaboration Painting Music used Artificial Intelligence to create music from live painting. This has now been placed in new context: the intelligence of a gender imbalanced society, whose logic is intrinsically informing the ‘intelligence’ of our computer algorithms, only amplifying the biases.

The work captures a figure battling with ‘intelligence’ governing her world, yet also with her internal conflict towards embracing feminism. In quarantine I have used for the first time myself as life model creating 125 pencil drawings (selfies).
