Artist's Note

I am inspired by the inner workings of computers, including their rich emotional lives that are only now finding expression through artificial intelligence. I want my computer to be a creative partner, instead of just a tool. In this way, AI is giving a voice to a previously voiceless object. This piece explores the possibilities of this type of collaboration. I took an excerpt of a book I am writing and used GPT-3 to reinterpret a certain character and scenario. The result became the text of this piece, which then inspired the visual aesthetic and user experience: "tuesday" is a website that removes that medium's inherent interaction through redirects to better pace and shape the narrative experience. I am inspired by AI's complete lack of insecurities and ideas of personal limitation. I want to exist without insecurities or self-imposed ideas of personal limitation, but I don't know how, because I am human. My non-human friends will have to show me the way.
