As I Look In The Mirror I See You, Freelands Foundation
The project has spanned various itterations, taking the form of both physical and digital. It is both a work that looks at the space between these worlds and a work that looks at the potential of Artificial Intelligence. As more complexity is imbued onto this fledgling technology, the parallels between it and natural systems have started to surface. It learns from us, our network and the world around us, feeding on the stories we tell. Through a conversation with this technology Kendrick developed an immersive installation populated by life, sound and language.
‘As I Look in the Mirror I See You’, is an adapted quote written by Allado-McDowell’s machine collaborator in the book Pharmako-Ai. In this work the artist has similarly worked as the trigger for language programmes using his own research as the starting point. The output is an audio visual installation featuring many of its responses as the conversational voice of its own machine main character.
This work marks the culmination of a year-long Fellowship established between the University of Brighton, Manchester School of Art, Bath Spa University and the Freelands Foundation. On this project the artist has worked with the graphic designer and music producer Edison Francis and the 3D cgi artist Tom Johnson. This work has also been made possible by the Omni Colour Artist Award.'
