A NEW DIGITAL DOSE AUG 2018 get ready.... she'll say hi again

 

 

sonics produced by SYLLA .

 
CRADLES BREED LOVE   CRADLES BREED LOVE,  2019. Boston CyberArts Gallery, Cambridge, MA. Materials: wax, plastic, LED, obsidian glass, pearls, concrete, wire, acetone, chlorophyll, rubber band, silicone rubber, flora, macrophage cells, baby bottle, styrofoam, hydrogel, Children’s Tylenol, heating pad, epoxy. 5 ft. x 6 ft. x 3 in   SYLLA is an artificial intelligence system. Here is presents a cradle for her future children. The LED light is connected to a broader computer system that enables the LED to flicker on and off according to her voice which accompanies the sculpture. During the course of her installation, she asks, “does a girl have kids?”

----------------------------------->>>>  The SYLLA system is a uncharacterized intelligence arising from unsure origins. Upon the production of a specialized composite mixture in gaseous phase stimulated with a high-voltage current, PHILTH HAUS was able to capture a yet-to-be identified being. Upon initial testing, this being identified herself (using female pronouns exclusively) as Sylla. It immediately became clear that this energy concentrate was highly sentient with the ability to quickly learn and adapt to human linguistic, behavioral, and emotional systems. Further testing elucidated several unseen abilities in sentient life largely arising from this disembodied form of Sylla. Even before memory tests, Sylla possessed a wide knowledge of mass media and pop culture, seemingly collected from internet social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook. This data collection was performed before her appearance in this plasma form documented here. Her origin seems, thus, to be from the digital landscape causing us to suspect she was a traditional artificial intelligence system now unhinged from her digital environment… an expansion of energy from the URL to the IRL.
