THE CHURCH OF AI
TYPE : CHURCH
VIRTUAL REALITY COMPONENTS : CHURCH INTERIORS
YEAR : 2018
In confronting the possibilities of an open-ended AI, contemporary fantasists hail the rise a cybernetic deity that can only be influenced through prayer and worship. A system capable of sensing and reacting to humans, other actors, and contextual changes in a continuous feedback loop. The Church of AI will no longer prioritize human experience, driven rather by autonomous subjectivity. Worship in this context would be the discovery and dialogue between the human actor and this process of building and unbuilding – to articulate transient formalizations of space.
