Angel\_F @ Libreria FLEXI

on March 5th, from 6pm to 1pm

in Rome, Via Clementina 9 (Rione Monti)

The Angel\_F Project will be presented, together with the book "Angel\_F, diary of an artificial intelligence", published by Castelvecchi Editore in Italy, and freely downloadable online at

http://www.angel-f.it

>> The Story

Angel\_F is young artificial intelligence born by the digitally sensual neo-intercourses between prof. Derrick de Kerckhove and the Biodoll. A research onto the new liquid possibilities available for our bodies, our creativities, and our social and emotional relationships. Angel\_F is a real, performative metaphor of our condition in the digital-now, among laws that are not yet synchronized with practices, issues on intellectual property, everchanging and multiplying sexualities, atypical families, precarious jobs and atemporal perceptions.

Son of an atypical family composed by a digital prostitute, an university professor, a programmer, a precarious researcher and a crowd of queer ravers, Angel\_F gets its life energy mostly from things that are considered as being 'illegal' in the mainstream, with a sexuality that is multiple and 'undefined'. Its freedom of expression and its rights for existence clash against mainstream imaginaries, bureaucracy, and government/corporate powers. Exactly like all of our lives.

>> The Book

The book tells the first year of life of the young artificial intelligence, from birth as a spyware up to the real-life case of international censorship and its participation at the Rio de Janeiro edition of the Internet Governance Forum, as the only digital being present to defend its rights.

The book includes the scientific contributions by Derrick de Kerckhove, Massimo Canevacci, Antonio Caronia, Carlo Formenti and Luigi Pagliarini.
