There is No Point of No Return by Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey

In a new work commissioned by the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Digital Ethics, Flynn and Humphrey investigate how our physical actions and movements generate ‘second bodies’ – virtual selves, quantities of data that can be monitored and harnessed, environmental impacts. Using technologies from the 1970s to the present – from classic analogue synthesisers to the latest in artificial intelligence – their contemplative, thought-provoking installation asks what these shadow selves amount to, and what world(s) they might be building.
