Emily Craver’s MFA Thesis project past future tenses lives in a multiverse of iterations. Embracing theatricality and improvisational presence, the work craves interaction amongst performer, witness, technology, and the digital and physical space encapsulating them. The work employs rigorous physicality and dramatic embodiment of artificial intelligence to question the relationships between human and machine.
