HYBRID ECOLOGIESVISUALIZING THE ERTHLY TRACES OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
Centro Cultural La Moneda and Escuela de Diseño of Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile extend an invitation to explore the exhibition Hybrid Ecologies, a project designed by academics Manuela Garretón and Martín Tironi, which explores the relations between the operational logics of AI and the environmental costs of this tech industry.
This installation shows us the water footprint required for the generation of images with Artificial Intelligence through an interactive experience, inviting us to reflect on its ecological impacts, its extractivist logic and the transitions necessary for sustainable habitability. This project is endorsed by Facultad de Arquitectura, Diseño and Estudios Urbanos (FADEU); Vicerrectoría de Investigación and Dirección de Arte y Cultura of Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile; Fondecyt N°1210006, Núcleo Milenio Futures of Artificial Intelligence Research (FAIR); Centro de Desarrollo Urbano Sustentable (CEDEUS) and Centro Nacional de Inteligencia Artificial (CENIA).
