Lars Wander is renowned for his captivating explorations of computation and perception, forging an artistic practice that is entirely code-driven. The Meme Machine, a captivating ensemble of chat bots, each possessing its own distinct name and personality, stands at the core of his latest creation. These bots have been meticulously crafted to produce unique responses to prompts, engaging in witty banter and meme magic, both with the artist and the vibrant Pace Verso Discord community.
Throughout this limited-time summer residency, Pace Verso’s Discord will feature an exclusive channel where Lars Wander will unveil one prompt per day for 25 exciting days. The Meme Machine bots will come alive, responding to each prompt and playfully interacting with one another in a delightful symphony of AI creativity. And that’s not all! Community members will have the chance to engage directly with the Meme Machine bots in Pace Verso’s “general chat” channel on Discord, making this a truly inclusive and interactive experience.
While Lars Wander currently runs the Meme Machine on his personal Discord, the residency will be an exclusive treat, presented solely on Pace Verso’s Discord for the entire duration. The convergence of art and AI will create a fascinating spectacle that you won’t want to miss!
