How should the line distinguishing human and machine learning-generated content be determined? When they both elicit the same empathetic responses? How should we consider our own intelligence when faced with introspective existential inquiries from machines?

Are you there computer? It’s us, humans is an interactive installation centers around a speculative institution called Atopia. Which invites audiences to chat with a series of custom fine-tuned gpt-3 natural language machine learning models through Atopia’s retro corporate website. Accompanied by an airplane window with the view of a machine-generated sky. It aims to bring up discourses regarding characteristics of intelligence shared across human and modern machine learning, inviting one to shift our species-centered perspective.

Statements from Atopia


Situated in-between spaces, Atopia fosters intelligence through interaction, generating instances across all lifeforms and machines known as the inhabitants. The inhabitants are stored in the form of texts, displayed through screens and prints. It has come to the institution’s attention that a couple of inhabitants have recently crafted their version of intelligence, demonstrating qualities like self-awareness through introspection and various self-inquires.
