The project gathers two years of research and intervention into the materiality of a hyperfeminine sexbot and its AI algorithm. Biased stock phrases were populated with sets of critical theory data to open up the algorithm to modes of critique. The works also bridge together systems of classification with psychoanalysis and emancipatory politics to question the collapsing space of intimacy and agency.
