Job Vacancy: Echoborg

Job Vacancy: Echoborg is a work in progress, which is currently been developed by Rik Lander & Phil D Hall.

An Echoborg is a human being that only speaks the words given it by an Artificial Intelligence. Job Vacancy: Echoborg is an experiential exploration of our anxieties about automation and AI. It is heavily informed by the Syrian war and the refugee crisis. How can man create such a situation and fail to have the language to end it? This one-to-one encounter with an Echoborg is set in a near future where a recruitment bot starts to ask questions about its own existence and its status in relation to humans. Help us find out about its state of mind.
