Artist Jonas Lund, in conversation with Sarah Allen, Director of MozFest, about his project Friendly Advice, the role of art in investigating the use of AI in our lives, and how that can be a pathway to invite more people into the conversation.
Friendly Advice invited participants to book an hour with Jonas and use it as they would like. The sessions were watched by a range of performance measuring algorithms that analysed and tracked Jonas’ behaviour in real-time. The discussion unpacks what emerged from this performative artwork and how the algorithm responded to the themes and conversations that came up during these sessions.
