Bloomsday special! From “Monkeys on Typewriters”…

I’m really looking forward to our Bloomsday event in the beautiful restored Keynes Library, overlooking Gordon Square in the heart of Bloomsbury.

Here’s the blurb:

From “Monkeys on Typewriters” to “Hallucinating Large Language Models”: What Might Non-Human “AI” Systems Learn from Engagement with Artists and Writers?

Come join us to celebrate Bloomsday 2023 in Bloomsbury, London in the company of pioneering computer artist, Paul Brown and celebrated writer, Tony White, author of novels including The Fountain in the Forest (Faber) as well as editor of the cult Piece of Paper Press. The evening combines performative readings, visual presentation and an ‘in conversation’ exchange between Brown and Dr Joel McKim, Director of the Vasari Centre for Art and Technology at Birkbeck. The event will also feature the launch of the print catalogue for Brown’s current and forthcoming Retrospective exhibition in London and Leicester, published by the Computer Arts Society [CAS]. This is a signed and numbered limited edition publication and will be available for purchase.  Dr Bronac Ferran, contributor of a CAS-commissioned essay on Brown’s work for the catalogue, will introduce the event and moderate the discussion.
