Join Artificial Intelligence (AI) ethics researcher Dr Kerry McInerney as she traces the liberatory potential of Asian American and diasporic writing and artwork to offer us different ways of thinking about environmental catastrophes caused by AI.
Kerry will begin by examining the ways in which Asian American and diasporic sci-fi writers and artists represent Asian people in their work, how they critically engage with the objectification of Asian bodies, and how at the same time they offer us a different kind of relationship with objects.
She will present how these forms of art production can equip us with novel and compelling ways to reframe our thinking about the climate crisis and environmental catastrophe caused by AI, with a specific focus on e-waste and it’s impacts.
In this talk, Kerry will join the dots between a range of artworks and creative outputs, with more theoretical approaches to waste and pollution – like Max Liboiron’s Pollution is Colonialism and Mark O’Driscoll’s The Whites are Enemies of Heaven – making the case for a more intersectional approach to thinking about sustainability narratives and more creative ways to interrogate AI in relation to the climate crisis.
This event is part of ESEA climate organising group Green Lions’ takeover of our Bow Road site to bring our Second Nature: imagining climate futures week to a close. Second Nature is a focused week of events on sustainable practices, reparative habits, and imagining climate futures.
