BxS Im Here 2

“Yes, I’m here” is a project by Gregory Blunt and Emmy Skensved that probes the promises and perils of artificial intelligence, smart home technology, and the rising use of voice activated personal assistants, such as Amazon’s Alexa.

Hosted off-site at the historic Bass Building in downtown Brandon, this multi-media installation contains a two-channel digitally-animated video, and an audio work that controls elements within the exhibition space via voice commands.

Featuring a speculative conversation between an individual and her voice activated personal assistant, the work touches upon themes of convenience, efficiency, and security. Blunt x Skensved examine how much these devices can learn from humans and whether they could eventually operate independently from their users. When one invites AI into the intimate space of one’s home, they are entering into a contract, relinquishing a certain degree of control and privacy in exchange for convenience; Blunt x Skensved cast a skeptical eye towrds the level of transparency in this exchange, and ask what are the potential ramifications and outcomes of this increasingly invisible presence.


The opening reception for this installation is held in conjunction with Culture Days.
