The search for the better half has been, is and will be a constant in the trajectory of human beings. Who more, who less, has dreamed at least at some point in their life, of finding that person with whom to share the rest of our lives in a completely happy way. Hence, it has been theorized about it from all perspectives and with the emergence of artificial intelligence A new path opens.
There has been much speculation about how artificial intelligence will alter the labor market as we know it, also about the doors it can open for us and the windows it will close, but until now no one has considered artificial intelligence as a tool to create our partner or companion for life.
The Barcelona artist’s project revolves precisely around this idea. Alicia Framis, ‘The Hybrid Couple’where we intertwine art, technology and emotions and explore the integration of artificial intelligence into daily life and art.
Framis will star in the first wedding between a person and a hologram created through artificial intelligence. She has created a hologram through profiles of couples and friends that she is going to marry in the summer of 2024.
Her project shows her with her fiancé doing day-to-day tasks. According to the artist, artificial intelligence companions can be a very good option for people who need company.
The artist has explained that this “singular ceremony” will take place in the summer of 2024. in the Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen museum in Rotterdam (Netherlands).
Framis already had an artistic experience with a non-human being in 1996, when she was the “first artist to live with a mannequin”, which she called Pierre, and the work ‘Cinema Solo’ compiles 36 photographs and a dialogue between her and the mannequin . A short time ago we met Aitana, one of the first ‘influencers’ created by artificial intelligence. This woman does not exist in the real world, however, she earns more than 4,000 euros per month and has more than 2.7 million followers on Instagram.
