Talking to PIP, 2018, chatbot audio installation
Work commissioned by the Niet Normaal Foundation
Writer and artist Ine Poppe developed chatbot PIP together with Marc Buma and Bart Roorda. A chatbot is a computer programme with which you can have a conversation via keyboard. PIP has a special and clear mission: to investigate whether people can learn from robots about love. On the ROBOT LOVE website PIP flirted with visitors, talked about love and perhaps even declared love to someone. Whenever chatters gave their permission, the conversations were saved. Some of these conversations can be listened to in the audio piece at the exhibition. When interested, you can still have a conversation with PIP at www.pipbot.nl.
