Dawn by Anna Nazo. Anna has shown artwork and performed at globally leading cultural institutions including: Ars Electronica, The Victoria & Albert Museum, NYC Creative Tech Week, and more. Dawn explores the ecology of performance between the audience, the artist-performer, and a spoken word/poetry that the artist co-writes with an AI.
