Ventriloquist Ontology


Ventriloquist Ontolog is the work I perform for artist Afroditi Psarra.

The project ‘Ventriloquist Ontology’ explores the limits of control and points of hybridization between the human and the machine through the relationship of a performer and a wearable entity. This ventriloquist modular soft entity speaks through text generated using a GPT-2 language model, trained on a dataset of texts around biopolitics, algo-governance, the surveillanced body, and queer theory.
