Orphan Drift and Etic Lab present KRAKEN? 2019
Department of Visual Cultures, Goldsmiths


A presentation by 0rphan Drift’s Maggie Roberts and Etic Lab’s Stephanie Moran and Kevin Hogan, asking what it might mean to communicate with an Alien Intelligence and how might we try to do it? The event was hosted by Ramon Amaro of Goldsmiths University Visual Cultures Department.

We discuss the ongoing collaboration between artist 0rphan Drift and tech research agency Etic Lab to explore the conceptual and material conditions in which an algorithm might learn to communicate with an octopus.
