Top of the Bots: Resurrection presented at upcoming Tate Late with Hyphen Lab

Posted on: September 18th, 2019 by libby

Top of the Bots: Resurrection is a new version of the on-going Top of the Bots series of performance/AI based artworks, the first of which was exhibited at Art Night London early this year. Top of the Bots is funded by Art Council England and considers the aesthetics and functioning of artificial intelligent algorithms to create live experiences that question our consumption of celebrities and our relations to each other.

The power of group singing in karaoke, imperfections in voice and individual vulnerability are used to explore alternative expressions of collective identity. Top of the Bots: Resurrection asks what it means to resurrect icons of western music while questioning notions of truth and labour.

Top of the Bots: Resurrection will be presented at September 27th's Tate Late in the Tate Exchange at the Tate Modern.

The Tate Exchange is place for all to play, create, reflect and question what art can mean to our everyday.

Hyphen-Labs is an international collective working at the intersection of technology, art, science, and the future. Through their global vision and multi-disciplinary backgrounds they are driven to create engaging ways to explore planetary-centered design. In the process they challenge conventions and stimulate conversations, placing collective needs and experiences at the center of evolving narratives.
