Ritual Humanity at the Intersections of Art and Technology Accounts of the Past and the Future
Keywords:Art, Creole, Mexico, Technology
In this paper, we shall refer to approaching digital art with a sense of critical reflection now that AI gains momentum and comes to its point of an almost overwhelming no-return. The Technosphere, which is already confronted by discriminatory access because of distinctive ecologies of industrial production and consumption, is defined by this always one-sided inclination and the anxieties thereof. The lack of access or deprivation of technological instruments may create absolute separation of cultural blocks and differences in people’s self-esteem within a connected world. Ritualized emotive behaviors lie at the root of allegiances and culturally sensitive performances. This passionate reflex towards the living continuum of history has been fed into AI channels – that is how the glory of digital practices are defined in underprivileged economies. A good example is the basic sensor actuated installations of Fernando Palma. Once again, we refer to a specific project from Mexico, and bear in mind projects on Indigenous electroacoustics.
