Greetings is an interactive and participatory artwork that explores the complexity of social interactions with fellow humans and autonomous machines, systems and agents.
Coming out of a pandemic with social distancing, lockdowns, and masked interactions, Greetings facilitate the participants' reflection on past interactions with friends, family, and the general public. With a social adjustment entering the pandemic — how have we adjusted, re-entering into the physical world, processing social cues and navigating interactions? At a time when human connection is needed most, Greetings tries to contrast this reflection of interpersonal connection with the tension created by the emergence of Artificial Intelligence tools like Midjurney, Dall-e 2 and ChatGPT. The individual is being thrust into situations of blurred uncertainty whether their online conversations, content or media (images/video) consumed have been completely or partially AI-generated.
