The Ear by Esteban Agosin

Esteban Agosin will be exhibiting the artwork The Ear as part of the group exhibit Survival for the Age of Ultra Anxiety curated by the Jeju Island Artist Collective. The Ear is a listening, surveillance, and Artificial Intelligence  (A.I.) project. It is a device that can collect human voices, transcribe them into text, and with that information create new texts.  The Ear is a machine that through an A.I. system can create ideas (texts) based on what it is listening to. It is a performative action that maps conversations in the city in real-time, processes human voices, and uses A.I. systems to create false voices, false texts, and then an online transmission of the landscape and soundscape live, mixed with fake and machine voices.

Opening reception is 11/06/2021 from 6-9pm.

This work was advised by professor Juan Pampin and Tivon Rice, with the support of the Digital Art and Experimental Media department, at the University of Washington.
