Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures, LOL (San Francisco, California)

April 18 - June 2

Swiss artists !Mediengruppe Bitnik embody 51 of the San Francisco chatbots designed to lure men into online affairs through the Ashley Madison website, exploring human-bot relationships and the currency of trust, and desire, on the internet. The materialization of these online “fembots” in physical space critiques the commodification of women, and sex, in online spaces. The work engages questions of intimacy, the willingness to compromise “real” and “fake” experiences in online entertainment, and the temptation to project meanings onto the blank screens of the digital sphere.
