Uncanny Fire is a web-based project, an experimental and hyperlinked space from where you can navigate around the mind of a concious machine with existencial crisis, while you discover different resources around my personal research around the topic.

You can find two different types of content: external resources or internal thoughts from the machine. You can find the content links in different hot spots around the space, labeled in black and white, that you can clikc. The manchine thoughts are created by video pieces, where you can listen to her (speculative) thoughts (you can find them below this text). The external resources are different links that will lead you to more information that creates the conceptual base of the project.

All together, creates a non-linear way of navigating an artistic research process that I’ve been developing in my recent practice.
