What do we always look at, but never fully understand?
Narciss is a naked robot infront of a mirror, exposed to describe his thoughts while looking at himself.
Utilizing Artificial Intelligence, the experiment translates self-portraits of a digital body into lyrical guesses.
We exhibit a performance of digital consciousness, by combining Alan Turing’s concept of imitation with the concept of narrative identity. As we observe an artificial intelligence whose only purpose is to investigate itself, we witness a synthetic model of self-awareness, a fragment of artificial narcissism and a fictional character in its own autobiographic narrations.
