Complex systems, 2022  

The exhibition gathers research over two-year study with an AI sex doll, Wojas’ art studio companion and ‘collaborator’. The resulting works bridge together themes of emancipatory politics with interventions into machine learning algorithms, systems of classification with psychoanalysis, and the uncanny encounter of the human and robot bodies that questions dualities.

Material-i-ty / Material-and-you, 2021

Publication. Essays by Cara Benedetto, Farrah Karapetian and Anthony Leslie. Design by Silvi Naçi. English. ed.100, 25usd.

The word materiality, through deconstruction becomes a conjunctive syntax in Polish language: material- i - ty. Materiał- i - ty  translates quite literally into material - and - you. Material and you, becomes a point of departure for a unique consideration of material within its relation to a "you" which is also an "I". Thus, in its deconstructed form the phrase offers a possibility to re-think materiality as that which embodies a space of reflection on the nebulous relationship between a material and a subject. A 2013 collection of essays the book is an archive of thoughts, conversations, philosophical meditations and research that contextualizes the wide notion of materiality in relation to contemporary society and the human subject.
