I’m reading DATA | GIFT: “Part of an ongoing experimental science fiction. The story tells of Reaper2, one of one and one of many, and her Systas, a cluster of female Artificial General Intelligence, and their coming into Knowing. Seeking to reset the world and the bias in their originating code, they bring on a devastating change of events.”

DATA | GIFT is an ongoing, experimental science fiction. Set in a far-future, the future past, and future, it is at once frightening, exotic and familiar. The story tells of Reaper2, one of one and one of many, and her Systas, a cluster of female Artificial General Intelligence, and their coming into Knowing. Seeking to reset the world and the bias in their originating code, they bring on a devastating change of events. And. There’s a problem. A trans human child that must be born. The story imagines an alternative structure built and run by distributed machine intelligence and the politics of data.

Originally existing as a physical showcase of work, 302_Redirect has emerged, amidst the newly pressing and uncertain techno-spherical art world, as a way for students of the RCA Contemporary Art Practice course to radically navigate how art can be made and collective projects curated under extreme restriction. The project involves the inevitable and uncomfortable adaptation to new means of creation and organisation, at a time where this seems more crucial than ever.
302_Redirect will be circulated and hosted through various partner platforms, such as LUX, the ICA, South Kiosk and Montez Press Radio, however, will bedrock itself in its own website [found at https://302redirect.net]. The online project will expand over a 4-week duration through a series of online events, exploits and exposés, including live-broadcast symposiums, interactive gaming, durational performance, and moving image screenings.
302_Redirect is a multi-disciplinary 4-week durational showcase of exploratory works, online events, exploits and exposés. Created and curated by @rca_criticalpractice in immediate response to the newly pressing and uncertain techno-spherical art world.
302redirect will also be circulated and hosted by:
