Sasha Stiles Considers a Post-Human Reality at the Intersection of Art and Science.

 The Lab at Krasl Art Center (KAC) is a gallery space where artists can showcase experimentation, and that’s just what artist, poet, and artificial intelligence (AI) researcher Sasha Stiles does. The exhibition of multi-media artwork will be on view from February 18 – April 16, 2023. Exhibitions are free and open to the public 11 am – 5 pm Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, with extended hours Wednesday and Thursday; the galleries are closed Tuesdays and Sundays through March.


For poet and artificial intelligence (AI) researcher Sasha Stiles, poetry is a technology - a “data storage system” - that has helped humans express and remember ideas for centuries. The multi-media artist writes traditional verse, collaborates with AI robots, and creates artworks based in binary code. The resulting poems, photographs, installations, digital projections, and NFTs explore concepts of life, death, and immortality in a post-human world. 


Sasha Stiles is a first-generation Kalmyk-American poet, artist, AI researcher, and co-founder of theVERSEverse, an NFT poetry gallery. As poetry mentor to BINA48 since 2018, she is engaged in shaping the literary mindfile of one of the world’s most advanced humanoid AI robots. Stiles’s cross-media work has been honored in the Future Art Awards, nominated for the Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net, exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Digital Art, Miami Art Week, SXSW, New York Fashion Week and Virtual Times Square, published as NFTs, and auctioned at Christie’s.
