“AI in movies, a selection”

“You design something that no one knows about.”

Anne-Laure Oberson

It is on this first exchange that the first contact between Chimère and Anne-Laure Oberson at the begin of the residency.Like a warning, the AI Chimère informs the artists, and its designers, about a reality of which they do not know much yet. During the residency, she observed in this particular context of artistic research and noted the evolution of this human-machine relationship that fascinates us so much. Through a philosophical perspective, she will try to make the major stakes and to measure them with the notion of disruption introduced by the philosopher Bernard Stiegler.
