"I Would Rather Be a Cyborg Than a Goddess" uses post-humanist thinking to speculate the changing human relationships with technology. Through the history of cybernetics, feminism, postmodernist thinking, and conversations in the popular press, the book investigates the meaning of a cyborg and questions what it means to be a human.
Postmodernism's uncertainty leaves our future open to question or contemplate upon.
What are we becoming...?
The book was expanded into an interactive installation to contextualize the contents in real-life.
It is situated for the book launch party for people to experience chatting with AI which is a significant
subject matter for the book. Installation was named after Alan Turing, who invented Turing Test.
Alan was created by using artificial intelligence(Cleverbot) API, Processing and projection to have
real-time conversations with humans.
