Jonas Staal & Radha D’Souza - Imaginaries of the Deep Present
What if we approached AI from an interdependent, intergenerational perspective? With their joint project The Court of Intergenerational Climate Crimes, Jonas Staal and Radha D’Souza propose new artistic and legal imaginaries that both interrogate and aim to dismantle the structures and mentalities that have brought humans and non-humans alike to the brink of extinction. How do those same forces permeate the technologies that have become so integral to our daily lives? Could a more conscious, ‘comradely’ approach to AI’s help repair the damage that has been done and move us closer to the worlds we want to create? This conversation is a sobering invitation to situate ourselves in the full complexity of our present moment.
