B is an interdisciplinary designer, artist/maker, technologist, researcher and producer. She creates collaborative and data-driven prototypes, sometimes as design speculations, art works, interventions, or proof of concept and other times just to play.
For the last 15 years she has been part of
the i-DAT Collective collaborating across disciplines, sectors and cultures to generate playful experimentation with creative technology.
B’s research focus is on exploring the emergent relationship between humans and artificial intelligence technologies, driven by personal data and interacted with through natural language interfaces (‘things that do, talk and feel’). More specifically, speculating about a near future living with affective conversational systems that imbues the potential of connecting with users emotionally. This is driven by an ambition to outline the emergence of a novel practice and cultural precedents for these innovations rather than commercial gain.
