Text: GPT-3, Voice: Robynne Orr

kennedy+swan asked the artificial intelligence GPT-3 to write the 'Manifesto of Fragility' in eleven sentences. While we listen to these phrases, we observe the simulated character Circe through a semi-transparent mirror during her morning routine. This seemingly incidental scenario raises the question of what agenda self-aware artificial avatars will have in the near future. And will those systems ever have a right to privacy?
