A.i. Love Letters
A project about love,
and artificial intelligence.
Thus far “love” has been spared algorithmic dissection. Perhaps because it is impossible to collect, impossible to model, impossible to predict; an unfathomable fixture of the human condition.
But what if love letters (tangible evidence of love — we can point to a correspondence of love letters as proof that “they loved!”) were parsed, patterned, predicted by an algorithm. Even... produced by artificial intelligence?
What would an AI generated love letter — born from something other than the human mind, from something other than human yearning — look like? What would it mean?
Do you have a love letter to contribute?
Handwritten missives between your grandparents during World War II? An AOL email from the 90’s? A long, ardent Twitter DM from this morning?
Call to action: please submit your letter to this project! Any length, format, or size; it just needs to feel like a love letter to you.
