An Open P2P Resource for AI technology: Art, Academia and Activism

An open knowledge list for all to add to, use, and share with others.

Created for the cultural production of AI: investigating various methods, such as: computer vision, artificial intelligence, neurorobotics, speech recognition, generative writing, generative music, image manipulation, statistical modelling. This page will be updated by myself and the community every now and then. It is a large document so it will need dedicated minds and eyes. However, it will be worth it, because there are some excellent and high quality books, articles, interviews, exhibitions and platforms to discover. Please reference this resource page as a matter of respect to all those who have contributed to it.

For now, this list will be based here. But, there are plans for it to be moved elsewhere sometime. When it happens I’ll let people know. Also, if you wish to clean this list up a bit more – please do. I’m far too busy at the moment, you will be credited for your time. Contact me privately for this.

A big thanks to all the contributors who given their time and added their material to the list. If you wish to know they are, please visit the bottom of this page.

‘Data/Set/Match’ A yearlong programme of commissions and public programming 2019-2020  at The Photographers’ Gallery London about the politics and aesthetics of the image dataset. It includes new commissions by artists working with existing computer science datasets: Everest Pipkin, Heather Dewey-Hagborg, xtine burrough & Sabrina Starnaman, Philipp Schmitt, Mimi Onouha.

[Panel] Sliding into a Face: the aesthetics and politics of image recognition. The Photographers’ Gallery, 2016. Video Available:

Zach Blas. Face Cages 2013–16. Four queer artists, including micha cárdenas, Elle Mehrmand, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, and Zach Blas, generate biometric diagrams of their faces, which are then fabricated as three-dimensional metal objects, evoking a material resonance with handcuffs, prison bars, and torture devices used during the Medieval period and slavery in the United States. The metal face cages are then worn in endurance performances for video. Face Cages is presented as an installation that features the four performance videos and four metal face cages.

Zach Blas. Facial Weaponization Suite 2011-14.  Amorphous masks that cannot be detected as human faces by biometric facial recognition technologies. The masks are used for public interventions and performances.
