If you could ask your ancestors (living or dead) a question, what would it be?
This interactive installation invites participants to join in a conversation across continents and across time. A customised Artificial Intelligence platform receives queries from members of the public and generates answers at random, offering advice gained from generations past.
Ifeatu Nnaobi’s interactive installation invokes deeper questions of heritage and connection for Black and people of colour living in the diaspora. The aim of this project is to prove thinking about how we exist as part of families (biological or chosen), communities (local or global).
Will your burning questions chime with a voice echoing down the ages?
