Julie & Brainbot


BISTRO 21, Leipzig - Germany - 7 Jan - 13 Feb 2022

Curated by Nora JH Langen

The installation is entirely based on a chat between two bots, using a debate simulator hosted on an open online platform. The conversation between the bots is shown on two screens and played on loudspeakers using artificial voice synthesis. Besides, a script is constantly searching for keywords from the topics related to the conversation of the bots; and through search engines, based on material from Wikipedia, it feeds them written material. These same keywords, using Google image search engines, are also used to search for pictures, which in turn get displayed on screens and printed on a thermal printer.
