P–OST x Uitnacht


Driekoningenstraat 16, Arnhem

On the 27th of January 2023 the exhibition Artificial Incantations opens in P–OST Arnhem. As part of the Uitnacht in Arnhem the opening will start at 6 PM. At 8.30 PM and 9.30 PM the artist Wesley Goatley will perform Newly Forgotten Technologies: Five Echoes. In this performance, Amazon’s voice assistant tells about discarded smart speakers as they move through the five stages of grief, and move from the center of the home to the trash heap.

In Artificial Incantations, artificial intelligence is examined from the perspective of occultism, while asking how we give meaning to the impact of 'smart' technologies such as self-driving cars, self learning algorithm and smart voice assistants such as Siri and Alexa.
