Binary Salon 14: Delta_Ark and Şerife Wong
Wednesday, January 25th, 6pm - 9pm
Main Room / 21+ / Limited Capacity

Please join us for an evening of drinks, conversation, and collaboration. Our Binary Salons are a place where those artists working at the intersection of art + technology can come together to share ideas and practices. These Salons are for artists, by artists.

After a three year hiatus, Binary Salon 14 returns with a showcase focused on the current conversation of the “Nexus of Art and Artificial Intelligence.”

Join us on January 25th at 6PM for presentations by local Bay Area artists: Ari Kalinovski (they/them) and Şerife Wong (she/her). Ari Kalinovski is a creative technologist who runs △ARK studios, which creates 3D environments and simulations powered by AI. Şerife Wong is the founder of Icarus Salon, an art and research organization exploring the ethics of emerging technology, and uses research and activism as a medium of art to create performances, social sculptures, paintings, videos, happenings, and interactive web-based work.

Moderated by Meredith Wade, Senior Product Manager of AI Innovation at Adobe and co-hosted by an interactive artist Marpi, and Jeff Whitmore, founder of Public Works.

△ARK

AI Worlds: LLMs, 3DML, GameAI and RL in Art & Games

△ARK is an experimental atelier that explores near and far future scenarios where biological and ecological systems interweave with computer networks at the human and civic scale, often in the context of dramatic climate change (or cataclysm).

The studio draws influence from the Jewish Mystical tradition, ecological movements, post-cyberpunk literature, manga and anime, Japanese poetry and post-industrial music from China.
