Chris Kore is a digital dreamer, multidisciplinary artist, and designer interested in the exploration of an ever-changing mediated reality and its influence on human perception. Her works touch the philosophical and psychological sides of our technological nature, question the expanding development of AI, mixed realities and digital traces.
"Born in 1993, Chris Kore grew up with a huge interest in sci-fi, futurism, and the intersectional relation between technology, art and science. In 2015 she moved to The Netherlands and in 2019 graduated with a bachelors’ degree in Graphic Design from the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague. She has won several prizes, such as the independent Stroom Encouragement Award 2019 (Stroom Den Haag, The Hague, NL), Icarus Award 2019 (ECP - Platform for the Information Society, The Hague, NL), Niio x AI Art Prize 2019/20 (2nd Prize Winner, Niio, Tel Aviv, IL).
Chris Kore exhibited her works in DeSchool, Amsterdam (NL); Theater Amsterdam (NL); TodaysArt Festival, The Hague (NL); TivoliVredenburg, Utrecht (NL); Bureau Europa, Maastricht, (NL). She is an official artist at Thursday’s Child Global platform (UK), Niio (IL), and Patty Morgan gallery (NL). Chris was commissioned to create digital artworks for Capitol Records (US), Astralwerks Records (US), TivoliVredenburg (NL), VICE Creators (NL), ØLÅF (NL) and Colin Benders (NL).
“I like to think about how physical and digital spaces merge. We are beginning to explore a new, technological aspect of our nature by using machine learning algorithms to overcome the boundaries to our understanding of what human consciousness is. With my project ‘AImnesia,’ I tried to imagine how AI would fill in memory gaps by creating fake memories that are plausible enough to be perceived as real. What will we remember if our digital memories can be gathered, classified and augmented by AI? Social media is already some kind of external memory, and that raises concern regarding the ethics of AI. I wanted to critically assess the centralized power of those who are sponsoring the research and creation of these algorithms, as well as the selection of the databases on which AI’s learn. I believe there is a general unawareness and bias regarding the rapid development of deep learning.""
