CMA Thrust Seminar | MINDING THE MACHINE: Human-computer interaction in artistic interventions for narrative influence.
9:30am - 11:00am
Rm 1032, LSK Bldg, HKUST

Humans can tell stories about anything: their life goals, the people they work with, the devices they use. In particular, humans tell stories to influence others and themselves, to get others to agree and participate, to frame their own narrative. To investigate how humans build narratives around interactions in environments and with machines, a computational or user study based approach shall be complemented by artistic practices that dig into human emotion and motivation, as well as how humans can deceive themselves and be misperceived by misrepresented by others, including machines.

This talk describes a body of work from an interdisciplinary practice highlighting projects in HCI (CHI, HRI, DIS) and media arts (exhibitions, performances) from the perspective of human psychology, to not only study the way humans interact with machines in virtual and spatial environments, but to allow for the experience of the interaction that attempt to glean insight from naturalistic audience interaction and performance evaluation. Exhibited works in robotic art, human-machine text generation, facial recognition, machine gestural studies, virtual environmental storytelling, etc, describe the way we Mind the Machine behind a veil of narrative influence.
