Artificial intelligence predicts that I will live for 36 more years (from this one) and then I will die. I don't think so AI. Two can play at that game.
If you want my mind you can take my pain as well - The Crawling Man Project is a led by the question “How does being online help me know myself?” This research stems from interest in the faith and doubt as constructive devises. This outcome is a web-based durational artwork exploring the intersection of the virtual and the real, the divine and the self.
If you want … is interested in the relation of time to life. Specifically, my time to my life. I am also interested in humiliation. If I can claim it maybe I can avoid it.
The modelled version of me is my digital familiar. It exists to take my pain, humiliation and suffering and hopefully die in my stead.
