These works have been inspired by a book called "Homo Deus" by history professor Yuval Noah Harari who wrote a history of the future. The idea of existing and co-habitating with entities who outsmart us in intelligence and reasoning, while we still value our ability to experience emotions as the thing machines will never have, remains an important theme in my work. Our value as intelligent beings is losing its importance while the data we generate seems to become more important. We are algorithms! They are Silicon, We are Carbon.

Perspex, glue, LED's, electric wire with connector.
One of the tests to assure that we are human is to use our ability to recognise a cat even though it might look like a dog or a wolf. This work is a reference to the difficulties a computer might have in identifying pictures correctly.

We are all algorithms, driven by our hormones and our evolutionary DNA. Are we sure that we are conscious, making decisions etc., or are we just data?
Where is Watson?

Artificial Intelligence entities need no houses or food. They never sleep or complain. They need no time off or salaries or holiday bonuses. Perfect employees!
