R&D Labyrinths Launch: Rindon Johnson, Black Swan & Ricardo Saavedra

This is a recording of the live event which took place on Serpentine’s Twitch on May 5th at 6pm BST. The first three episodes feature Rindon Johnson on his poetry bot D’Artagnan, Black Swan on their consensus-building tool Cygnet and Ricardo Saavedra on his music composition interface, Gradient. Followed by Q&As with the artists who built the tech.

Hosted by Eva Jäger, Associate Curator of Arts Technologies and Co-I of the Creative AI Lab, and the effervescent ‘Orb’ (voiced by Calum Bowden).
