Part of In Touch


Me AndOther Me / Cenk Güzelis and Anna Pompermaier, in collaboration with Valdemar Danry

(Austria, United States)
2023, Installation and video documentation  

Be My Guest! situates itself in a speculative future in which questions around artificial intelligence and posthuman theories come together in a mixed-reality dinner setting. The host of this dinner? AI, responsible for the menu and the spatial experience of its dinner guests. This way, Be My Guest! allows for discussions on the growing socio-cultural role of AI-models and their integration as a new kind of social species in our everyday scenarios. Using one of the oldest gathering rituals in our everyday lives, this work explores what happens when species meet.

The project is realized with the support of Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, through the European Media Art Platform, and the support of iMAL, Art Center for Digital Cultures & Technology, the ./studio3, Institute for Experimental Architecture of Innsbruck University and the MIT Media Lab Fluid Interfaces Group. The project is co-funded by the Federal Ministry Republic of Austria, Arts, Culture, Civil Service and Sports, and supported by the Culture Moves Europe program of the European Union implemented by the Goethe-Institut.
