Stephanie Dinkins is a transmedia artist who creates platforms for dialog about artificial intelligence (AI) as it intersects race, gender, aging, and our future histories. She is particularly driven to work with communities of color to co-create more inclusive, fair and ethical artificial intelligent ecosystems. Dinkins’ art practice employs lens-based practices, emerging technologies and community engagement to confront questions of bias in AI, consciousness, data sovereignty and social equity. Investigations into the contradictory histories, traditions, knowledge bases and philosophies that form/in-form society at large underpin her thought and art production.

Bassem Saad is an artist and writer born on September 11th and trained in architecture. His work explores objects and economies that distribute violence, pleasure, care, and waste. Through time-based media, sculpture, and writing, he locates space and time for maneuvering within and beyond governance systems.

Marta Di Francesco is a London based artist, exploring new aesthetics, merging poetics with code. She investigates digital identity and its fragmentation, exploring and questioning it through digital bleed, time displacement, video processing, and the sculptural quality of time in volumetric aesthetics. The poetics in her practice refers to an existential, conceptual and critical approach, that can be both intimate and radical. Through her practice she is preoccupied with the right to time, and time consciousness, as a form of resistance, in times of speed, acceleration and distraction. In her work, she explores liminality, as the physical and virtual world merge and fade into one another, and these moments of transition and displacement, and the constant – ad infinitum – self mirroring of the metaverse, create new temporalities.
