Dérive performance – Critical Philosophy Play

In a performative card game, we orientate ourselves on a reinterpretation of Dérive and Detournement as a mind game. AI ethics, generative text and performance are grotesquely coupled with an interpassive mind reading device. Using GPT-2 as a poetry game.

We invite you to indulge yourself: the staged generation of artistic research texts, the oracle of neuro interfaces and somatic experience. We play sensory expansion and introspection in the fog of time.

In this project I was responsible for the fine-tuning of a locally hosted GPT-2 model that was trained on data from our artistic manifesto. During the performance, I was editing the lines that were read by the artist and responding to the questions of the second player.
