The All Rivers and Species Act
This multifaceted blueprint is a collaboration between Cristina Napoleone, Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti, Nayeli Vega, Jemma Woolmore, Jenny Handley & Lily McCraith. The collective uses the name TARASA - The All Rivers and Species Act. The group considered stories of person-hood; the many global perspectives on the non-human; the lives and rights of water. With a particular interest in technology, TARASA collaborated with machine learning AI-tool GTP2, to generate a fictional legal text (read here), which was instructed by various models interacting with each other.
The group channelled the voice of the act through a specific creature, in a visualised organic woven combination of River life. Drawing from images of waterways around the world, several soundscapes were extracted as imagined by AI machine Imaginary Soundscape. These soundscapes are combined with actual aural interactions from Rivers the members could connect with near their homes across the world.
