DDC INCONTRA Stephanie Sherman — Narrative Machines (15.05.2024, h 17.30)


Last talk organized by the Communication Design courses coordination in collaboration with dotdotdot.


Stephanie Sherman, with the lecture Narrative Machines: Devices, Denotation, Designation and Derivatives will speculate on the future of narrative machines in light of histories of hardware and software, considering how devices, denotation, designation and derivatives in AI systems form wholly new ways to externalize cognition, establish contextual environments, and create collective stories.

She develops projects and organizations that reprogram and reorganize outmoded systems as collaborative platforms. Her research focuses on the history and futures of automation, and she is currently working on transforming her PhD “Auto: Fordian Parables of Platform Automation” into a book. She currently directs the MA Narrative Environments at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London and is the Associate Director of Antikythera, a program at the Berggruen Institute on the future of planetary computation. She is also a researcher at Autonomy (a think tank on the future of work) and runs (a nomadic translingual radio station).
