Diffracted Sensibilities. Artificial Gaze is a virtual exhibition that has been shaped around the same named elective course at the School of Communication, Royal College of Art (London, UK). As a collective, we look at ways of rethinking and reframing artificial intelligence (AI), inviting new perspectives, nonhuman centered conversations, speculations and storytelling that empowers diversity in understanding intelligence, liveness and sensuousness.

Diffracted Sensibilities. Artificial Gaze looks at sentient AI, digital queer ecologies, parallel realities and other futures with a focus on ethics of technology, politics and poetics of storytelling situated in a queer-feminist context. It diffracts multiple points of view on the subject matter, deconstructing the colonial language structures around AI. Informed by contemporary art, philosophy, communication environments, science and technology studies, it develops ways of seeing the world around us through cognitive assemblages (N. Kathryn Hayles), sympoietic relations (Donna Haraway) and distribution of the sensuous.
