By overlaying her own fictions onto news and other contemporary events, Hayashi Chiho makes pop-inflected, humorous artworks that have something erotic about them.
Artificial Lover & True Love is an installation comprising an amusing video piece in which the“Android President,” a married AI robot who runs a ceramic workshop, falls in love with one of his human female students, and a reconstruction of the President’s office. Through this Android President AI robot equipped with a human disposition and emotions, this work prompts us to reconsider the definition of life and humanity, just as cutting-edge research on artificial intelligence and artificial life does.
