Scrying through AI
series of workshops, 2021
Series of participatory design workshops using synthetic verbal collaging method during group visioning process.
This method - creating a collage with text-to-image AI generative tool - is using back and forth translation between images and text as a stimulus for imagination and offering empowerment for participants who are not visually-oriented and skilled in working, , creating or thinking with images.
Through this method, artificial intelligence is playing an active role of a non-human agent mediating the visualisation process for people. However, AI is not used only as a visualisation tool. Interacting with AI in forming a vision successfully helps in diverging from the pre-lined tracks of human imagination.
