The Ghost in the Machine


In this relational installation and performance, we ask the question “What does the Ghost in the Machine look like?” A hired philosopher answers questions and assist viewers to portray this “imaginary object” as a physical model.  With chat logs from online spaces depicting conversations, each viewer adds their interpretation to form a collective whole. Produced in collaboration with Scott Kildall.
