Abstract

Abstract:

What does it take to make a machine that you may love and that has the potential of loving you back? It is the necessary conceptual components, as opposed to the technology involved, that I will explore. Luckily, fiction, literary and cinematic, unbridled by reality, has been exploring these conditions of possibility for quite some time. My main guides will be works by E.T.A. Hoffmann, E.A. Poe, Villiers de l'Isle-Adam, Adolfo Bioy Casares, Philip K. Dick, Pierre Cassou-Noguès and the movies Blade Runner and Her.
