Terms of Play

In 'Terms of Play' 60 different training sentences were taken of the voice-cloning software 'Lyrebird IA' and recombined in a screenplay to form a dialogue. This dialogue was then interpreted by two actors. Each part was interpreted in a different emotion: some factual, some dramatic, some singing… The 2-channel video work deals with the processes of machine learning technologies which are playing an increasing role in film production. By appropriating and reinterpreting the training sentences (which the software itself has taken from publicly available texts, novels and essays), the work inverts these processes and reflects them critically.
