✨🔖 new blog post on "digital innovation and crisis-related resilience" 

Hi, I’m Kate, I’m an academic at King’s College London #kcl researching the impact of #artificialintelligence #ai on people and societies. I am weirdly an expert on #sexrobots and #sextech (wrote a book called “Turned On: Science, Sex and Robots”). I'm a Patron of #HumanistsUK and I'm on the board of the #OpenRightsGroup. Born and raised in Co. Down; slowly learning #Irish so my bilingual nephews can't talk about me behind my back.

🔖 Joanna Zylinska on non-human creativity 

"The concept of nonhuman creativity encourages us to rescale the human to a different measure. Cutting the human down to size, it allows for the opening up of the historical definition, with its colonial wounds and epistemological delimitations, to the planetary horizon—while also issuing an ethical injunction. In this context, media art can be read as a historically-significant human practice of attuning our sensorium to events and transformations unfolding in our world—and of recalibrating our attention and sensibility to a different measure."

From Joanna Zylinska's contribution to "Media Art 21".
