Not/Be Heard

Background

Below is a link to the video submission for Augmented Creativity workshop at Creativity and Cognition Conference 2022, Venice Italy, where CI Jen Seevinck describes her trajectory and potential for integrating machine learning and AI into new art-making processes – by augmenting opportunities for voice, and for visual textures and grounds, and its potential for application in this project, particularly in the work Not/Be Heard.

Not/Be Heard

This installation visualizes the words of a witness for the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety (2019), alongside insights from commission reports, through exploratory sketches with found and concrete poetry. Machine learning has additionally been used to parse international interpretations of caring, via image search and generation. These experimental processes have enabled elicitation and interpretation of concepts and generation, direction and curation of visual forms.

Not/Be Heard will be exhibited as part of Design for Change: Designing the world we want’ conference which will be showcasing the preliminary findings and progression of this ARC Discovery Project as part of an exhibition – ‘Time to Listen’: Amplifying Voices from the Royal Commission into Aged Care through Art & Design.
