Suzanne Kite (Concordia University-Montreal)
Urban Video Project hosts multimedia artist and scholar Kite for an experimental lecture exploring how artificial intelligence reproduces the logics of coloniality, flattening land, people, and lifeworlds into objects of knowledge — data points to be extracted. Kite imagines what it would mean to instead build algorithms, code, and software according to the Lakota understanding of the Good Way transmitted by her family members, which considers the good for Seven Generations into the future. Kite’s work will also be featured at UVP’s Everson Plaza projection site.
This event is part of Syracuse Symposium’s year-long series on “Conventions.”
