Conversation is an interactive hologram installation. When entering a room the viewer is confronted with a hologram of a middle-aged man, discoursing politically sensitive subjects. The hologram is programmed to engage in a conversation by responding with “yes” and “no” answers to questions asked by the viewer. Anyone is welcome to participate in a conversation about art, sexism, and technology.
The Internet with its virtual assistants, interactive maps and such became an integral part of everyday life, simplifying it. However, for most people, it’s difficult to imagine electronics dominating us and our views by expressing their emotions, ideas, and thoughts. In other words, it is not yet easy to imagine robots to be sensitive smart creatures.
