RESIDENCY | Q.bot
Artist: Lucas LaRochelle
November 1st to December 13, 2019
Public presentation: Thursday, December 12 (Time TBD)
At Studio XX
As part of a residency, Lucas LaRochelle will develop Q.bot, an independent computer program inspired by the stories and experiences shared by LGBTQ+ people on Queering The Map, a mapping website and living archive that consolidates moments, memories and queer stories from around the world. From these shared personal and composite stories, Q.bot will generate a text using a single voice, with the political vision of obscuring individuality through the development of a representational agent based on collectivity, exploring post-individualistic strategies of surveillance resistance.
