24H HOST - Lauren McCarthy

24H HOST - Lauren McCarthy

Designed in collaboration with Casper Schipper

What roles would humans perform in a future determined by artificial intelli-gence (AI)? Before too long, algorithms will be able to optimise our entire lives, including the most intimate contacts and interactions. The one thing algo-rithms aren’t good at yet is the expression of emotions. In this work, McCarthy advances the idea that we might well play our final role as an emotional interface for AI. 

During a 24-hour performance, she will show what an informal party among friends might look like under such circumstances. In this case the hostess entertains a constantly changing number of guests, instructed by AI to optimise their stay and their interactions.
