Les voix is a new public artwork by Nicolas Grenier that explores the grey area between human and machine, mind and body, language and meaning.
The work presents an embodied artificial intelligence that confronts us with the following question: when we talk to an AI, what is this voice that talks back to us?
With Les voix, Nicolas Grenier challenges us to explore the complexity of this question in an immersive environment, where the public can interact with a Large Language Model (AI) through a human interface. This interface, consisting of an interpreter whose voice and body incarnate a text generated by the AI, then becomes an ambiguous dual entity, with which the audience is invited to engage in a face-to-face conversation.
The project is part of the initiative “I love working downtown” powered by the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal, supported by the Ministère de l’Économie, de l'Innovation et de l'Énergie and hosted at Nouveau Centre par Ivanhoé Cambridge.
