Join multimedia artist and scholar Kite for an experimental lecture, What‘s on the earth is in the stars; and what’s in the stars is on the earth, which blends emerging technologies to explore the conflicting conventions of American settler-colonial identity and Lakota epistemologies.
In this hybrid remote and in-person experimental lecture, multimedia artist Kite will explore how artificial intelligence reproduces the logics of coloniality, flattening land, people, and lifeworlds into objects of knowledge — data points to be extracted. Kite intervenes on the conventions of colonialism embedded in emerging technologies by imagining what it would mean to instead build algorithms, code, and software according to the Lakota understanding of the Good Way transmitted by her family members that consider the good of Seven Generations into the future.
In conjunction with the event, the two exhibitions featuring Kite’s work will be on view. In the Everson’s Malzman Gallery, the interactive video piece Fever Dreams will be on view. On the Everson plaza, Makȟóčheowápi Akézaptaŋ (Fifteen Maps), which was commissioned by Light Work for UVP, will be on view as an architectural projection on the north facade.
Following the in-person lecture, join UVP for refreshments and view her new video work Makȟóčheowápi Akézaptaŋ (Fifteen Maps) on the Everson facade.
