The hard watery edges of AI

Anthropologist Pamila Gupta said : “If coloniality is established through land, then might the decolonial be suggested by water?”

Poetic, queer, mystical, dreamy, and magical affects and temporalities work as a feminist-decolonial fog ostensibly to cloak the spiky edges of AI boosterism. But we also risk being lost in the fog.

This performance-talk examines the cultural politics of making our way
through by attending to the materiality of shared life in AI times.
