Teaching an ARTificially Intelligent Avatar How to Say I Love You in Social VR

Description

For the December Gazelli Art House Residency Brooklyn-based artist Carla Gannis will be collaborating with her avatar C.A.R.L.A. G.A.N. (Crossplatform Avatar for Recursive Life Action Generative Adversarial Network) to mine the philosophical and emotional depths of Sci-fi tropes and Magic Realist allegories. Through mimesis, performance and conversation, in virtual and physical spaces, Carla and C.A.R.L.A. will switch between mentor and mentee to create poetic instantiations of the “real” across realities.
