The image shows three hands cupped together, fingers curving into hold a large, glossy red apple. The apple appears centred in the image, with a visible stem on top. The hand from the top is free-floating with no connection to a wrist and presents six fingers. The two hands on the bottom are connected to wrists and have three visible fingers.

The Webster Library is pleased to present Me, Myself, and AI: Is This My Voice, an exhibition showcasing the works and reflections of design and computation arts students of the fall 2023 DART491 discursive design studies course.

Located in the vitrine on the library's first floor and in the Library's digital discovery counter, the exhibition presents a collection of student works that explore questions that arise from confronting creative self-expression with automation and artificial intelligence.

The exhibition design puts the student works in conversation with two critical perspectives on generative AI: on the right, the many questions that arise from corporate infrastructure and the resulting power that underpins this technology and, on the left, the individual, experiential aspect of its use, often critical but also playful, exploring, and humorous.

The works are arranged to provide context for each other and stimulate a dialogue between contrasting perspectives, encouraging viewers to reflect on some of our society's complexities regarding AI and how the next generation of creatives will help us think through these challenges and find answers.

Opposite the vitrine, each work is mirrored on the digital discovery counter, accompanied by the prompts that generated the works or reflections from the students. The interactive display invites viewers to delve deeper into the student's creative process, illustrating how they grappled with the challenges and possibilities of AI, addressing various topics, including Authenticity, Authorship, 'BS,' Ownership, Inclusion, Sustainability, Design Justice, and Identity.

Me, Myself, and AI: Is This My Voice offers a timely exploration and student perspective on AI's potential, limitations, and challenges for young creatives in an increasingly digitized and automated environment.

Curated by Florian Grond, assistant professor of Design and Computation Arts, and Shadi Roozie, TA and graduating student of the Master of Design program.
