Sasha Stiles is a poet, artist and AI researcher recognized as a pioneer of generative literature and blockchain poetics. Her cross-media work — which has been honored in the Future.Art.Awards, nominated for the Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net, and exhibited in analog and virtual realms around the world — probes what it means to be human in a nearly post-human era. Stiles is co-founder of theVERSEverse, a literary NFT gallery, and Poetry Mentor to the humanoid android BINA48, and has spoken on poetry and technology at SXSW, Miami Art Week and Art Basel, the Contemporary and Digital Art Fair and elsewhere. Her hybrid book Technelegy has been hailed as “an instant techno-classic.”

At Home in the Body

with Janine Antoni

This class will be part laboratory, part playground, part archeological dig: a place to relate, to connect, and to honor difference. Where are we politically, geographically, and culturally? Where are we in terms of our gender and belief systems? How does this affect our making?

Arts & Culture of Nature

“Art and the Culture of Nature” aims to foster a better understanding of how artists today can make work engaging the environment in a time of intensifying ecological calamity.
