Opening reception with the artist on Friday, May 13, 6 - 8 pm.
Artist Mary Flanagan uses technology to develop collaborative systems to produce her work, often highlighting the creative labor of other female authors and artists in the process. In the [GraceAI:Daydreams] series, Flanagan has an artificial intelligence named Grace create art by training her with the work of tens of thousands of women artists from around the world. In her [mirror book], Flanagan collaborates with Emily Dickinson by creating software that merges their two very different poetry styles, dynamically animated within a very large physical book. In her piece [Colors of Remembrance], Flanagan offers us a moving, compassionate CO-VID memorial in the form of a computational drawing, taking the language of abstraction and visualizing a daily image for those who perished from the disease. Throughout all of these projects, the sense of the possible pervades her use of these seemingly magical technologies, pointing to imaginable futures.
