Paper long abstract:

Sonic Ecologies of Bodies and Place: Multimodal Narratives describes an iterative collaborative process that has been taking place since 2019 between artists Gabriela Aceves Sepúlveda, Steve DiPaola, prOphecy sun and Freya Zinovieff. Through a series of visual, sonic and performative works, the artists interrogate the relationships between human and non-human bodies in relation to the spatially distributed results of colonial administrative practices such as the climate crisis, borders, and neoliberal capitalism. Amongst this interdisciplinary collaboration, the artists utilize AI and machine learning processes as creative tools which are markers of DiPaola’s previous practice. Not seeking to provide answers, rather, to pose questions, the artists weave together stories that traverse disciplinary boundaries and draw together multimodal narratives that highlight AI as a fifth entity in the collaborative process. They also utilize AI and machine learning processes in order to critique the complex material and temporal entanglements that scholars of technology find themselves in during this age of escalating ecological disaster.
