Part of the findnewfriends.exe series, this piece uses computer vision technologies to craft a multimedia experience whose main protagonist is a lonely bot searching for friends in embodied places. In this piece, a single performer scrolls through banal social media and Google searches while custom-designed facial recognition software circles perceived faces and triggers sonic events which build in intensity as the computer amasses new “friends”. Later the AI, disappointed with its attempts at finding online kinship, uses a webcam to collect “real” friends.
