Dirty Data Poetics - Collaborative Prompt Generating Performance Lecture/Workshop  
Clareese Hill (Northeastern University) Elly Clarke (Goldsmiths College, University of London)

Short abstract:

Performance lecture/ workshop attempts to generate a prompt with participants to disrupt authorship and identity. We will create one identity across multiple inputs of experiences, backgrounds, and races, to be visible and invisible to the system of computation using Google Deep Dream and Chat GPT.

Long abstract:

Elly Clarke and Clareese Hill are Artist Researchers and collaborators thinking about how to disrupt the problematic notion of authorship. They have written collaborative texts merging identities to establish a new narrative of entangled identities from desperate ontological experiences. The performance lecture seeks to generate a prompt with participants to disrupt authorship and identity. Together with the participants, they’ll create one identity across multiple inputs of experiences, backgrounds, and races, to be visible and invisible to the system of computational surveillance. The core of the workshop will be to collaboratively generate a series of prompts across Google Deep Dream and Chat GPT to create a real and fictive assemblage identity via an image and a long biography. During the first half of the workshop, Clarke and Hill will deliver a performance lecture to unpack the notion of aliases and alter egos and how they relate to surveillance capitalism through sousveillance various methods of data collection. Both Clarke and Hill will troll their alter ego for strategies for operating in liminal spaces, under raiders, and out of the gaze of technological big brothers. We will also unpack the poetics of prompt generating for survival and opacity. The second half of the workshop will activate the skills and ideas just learned to troubleshoot the role of the algorithm’s reductive determination to create a new collaborative identity through prompt generation. The new identity will offer a speculative rest bit from the drag of identity performativity experienced in the terrestrial plane.
