Project Description

This is a LARP (Live-Action Roleplay) performance where I would talk to a participant through a videocall interface and act as a human who believes himself to be an AI. The participant is then directed to play this little game where two chat windows are open: one connected to the chat AI Cleverbot* and the other connected to me. The point to make is that "real" AI and someone pretending to be one is quite indistinguishible.

Created as part of USC's Experimental Game Topics class.
