AI bot 1 by Beverley Hood (2024)

Bots and beings is an exhibition of watercolours and collages on paper by artist Beverley Hood. As an artist mostly working with digital media and performance, Beverley began to integrate watercolour and collage into her practice during the Covid-19 pandemic. The works presented started as a means to reimagine humanlike representation in robotics and AI, thinking through the ethics of who, what and how is represented. This has evolved into a complementary practice to think through near-future bodies and beings. This is the first exhibition of the resulting exploratory works on paper.

Beverley Hood is an Edinburgh-based artist and Reader in Technological Embodiment and Creative Practice, at Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh. Since the mid-1990s, she has interrogated the impact of technology and science on the body, relationships, and human experience through the creation of digital media, performance, and writing. Her work is interdisciplinary and research-led, undertaken in collaboration with a range of practitioners, including medical researchers, scientists, writers, technologists, dancers, actors, and composers. She trained in Sculpture and Electronic Imaging at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee, Scotland and Nova Scotia College of Art & Design, Halifax, Canada.
