About the Item
The work examines a wide range of relationships between humans, animals and artificial intelligence in the near future, when the latter will be able to achieve the status of fully-fledged subjects. The new materialism, actor-network theory, biomechanics, genetic engineering and a number of other recent studies and theories suggest other foundations for the production of knowledge.
The work suggests imagining the complex interaction of a person with non-human agents even now. The look of artificial beings with camera-eyes makes viewers feel their own objectivity and rethink the whole system of relationships with the Other.
