La voz digital (The digital voice), 2018

One channel FHD Video, color, sound stereo, spanish with english subtitles

8 minutes

This work researches and questions how we are building robots and artificial intelligence, such as digital assistance. Renowned and fictional digital voices, such as Hal 9000 or Her, appear to become real voices such as Siri, Cortana, or Alexa. However, what becomes my focus point is when technologies “gender” these voices, highlighting the unnatural process. In this video Siri manifests herself as a voice, and a woman discusses how she thinks and feels about digital assistances. As a result, it becomes a rather xenofeminist Artificial Intelligence Manifesto.
