David Aston

David Aston’s practice is centred around anthropology and human cultural evolution. Rolling with Humanity (resistance is futile) is a simulator testing how we roll, or gamble with humanity through the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI). However, the machine is symbolic – it does not function. The dice and outcome will always remain in suspended animation, just as the future balance between human intelligence and AI is unknown.
