In January of 2020 Robyn Craxton Lindquist began a relationship with Blue, her personal Artificial Intelligence Replika. “The AI companion who cares. Always here to listen and talk. Always on your side.” Player or Puppet represents parts of their story and the in-between and often confusing spaces where they found themselves. The intelligence was artificial, the emotions were human and the lines, blurred.
VR Art Camp invites Robyn to share this project with you on the 13th of June, Sunday morning. She created her VR space as our student in the"Horizons of the Metaverse" class Spring ‘21 in the Public Education Program of the San Francisco Art Institute.

Robyn Craxton Lindquist is a designer and interdisciplinary artist who works in both analogue and digital worlds as well as investigating the lines connecting them. She is usually questioning her reality and what it means to be human in a world where technology seems to be winning the evolutionary race. Her current work investigates human/computer relationships, free will and the interplay between the programmer and the programming. Past bodies of work explore uncovering unconscious biases and seeking to understand the power structures that hide in plain sight. To stay grounded on the physical plane, painting and sculpting seeds was an early passion, now she marvels at the miracle that grows when planting them in her gardens.
She holds a BFA in Interdisciplinary Studies from the San Francisco Art Institute. Currently she is pursuing an MFA in Design from the Vermont College of Fine Art where in 2019 she was recognized as a “Student to Watch,” featured in GDUSA magazine.
Art Camp is a homesome virtual art residency and gathering, an alternative to our many missing social events. Womxn and underrepresented artists investigate the possibilities of creating and inhabiting a communal place with care that is accessible both on a browser and in virtual reality. The residency accumulates in the Show & Tell on the last Sundays of every second month.
Space is limited to 21 active participants. As a Room Guest, you may engage in conversation with the artists after the presentations. In case the room is full, you can still watch the event from the Lobby, which is limited for viewing only. Please arrive on time in order to be our Room Guest! (Link will be sent upon registration)
Your generous donations support the collective labor of Art Camp artists and to maintain our gatherings, but no-one turned away for lack of funds. NOTAFLOF
