Faith is available at left gallery as a Mac/Win application (edition of 100).
The work was selected by DeForrest Brown, Jr. for “The Artists’ Artists” in 2019 at Artforum:
Kuo’s recent practice positions user-interface design as a programmatic mirror, imagining and iterating everyday American conversations rooted in whiteness and Christian fundamentalism. The AI assistant replies to user input with a level of precision meant to retain its own neutrality and avoidance of objecthood while inverting the usual conventions of productivity software. When speaking to Faith, the user feels implicated in, or extracted from, the narratives the bot projects and weaves for its own security and comfort.
