Info-God: The Fastest Way To Get Answers From The Lord

The overall objective of this work is to immerse the viewer in a playful aesthetic experience, in order to promote critical reflection, between the need for human existential answers, social control of the Catholic Church and technological consumerism. People should recline to interact with the video-sculpture, this simulates a conversation with a computer that claimed to be God, all this made possible by the use of an artificial intelligence bot programmed in AIML (Artificial Intelligence Markup Language). The software is able to maintain a natural conversation with the people who interact with him and at the same time learn from them through trial and error. The piece itself is an heresy and the user is condemned to the status of a heretic.
