Technologies and social structures cannot exist without first being imagined; what we can imagine conditions what we can create. The role of the artist is to make imagination felt, to bring new worlds into existence through sensory experience. It is critical that new technological and organisational initiatives engage directly with artists. As we develop new capacities to sense, think about, and organise around an interspecies future, we look to artists to help us understand what an interspecies world feels like, what it means to be a subject in this world, and what new possibilities for expression and communication might be realized. Here, Director of Light Art Space Bettina Kames, is in conversation with artist Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg.
