Part 2 – Bot existentia

Bot existential is an audiovisual piece by Joëlle Snaith and Kris Cook that explores the possibility of artificial consciousness and machine impressions of the environment. The machine mind cycles franticly through memories and impressions as it learns, trying to understand and make sense of its purpose. These impressions can overload and overwhelm, constructing an understanding of the world and of itself that is both true and false. The soundtrack is written by electronic artist Killawatt.
