About Mariana: Mariana Fernandez is an artist, writer, researcher, feminist and the current editor and communications person at ARIAS. Her practice intersects the fields of performance, linguistics, and technology. She is fascinated by fictional archives, piles of stuff, hedges, memes, guinea pigs, and PowerPoints. In her book “Dear Machines”, she explores the potential of natural language processors as companions and co-writers, wondering about authorship, notions of digital kinship, and her own relationship to machines. Currently, she is focused on researching A.I., language and our intimate and sometimes problematic relationship with technology. She is part of the Sandberg A.I. research group, Visual Methodologies at the HvA, founder of the feminist research collective “COVEN”, and she leads the A.I. thematic line at ARIAS Amsterdam. In her spare time, she plots revolutions, plays tennis, and makes critical commentary about reality tv, which she loves.
