Sonia Bernac investigates ontological frustrations of old and new materialisms, teratologies of synthetic beings, intuitions of science-fiction, and medieval systems of knowledge. Her work, framed as a bestiary of distributed intelligence, makes sense of algorithmically clustered wisdom(s), murmurations of data and generative AI. Without equating non-human with inhumane, she pays particular attention to the emergence of pathological systemic forms: exclusionary, compulsive or sadistic imagining. She is a researcher, writer and artist at the Royal College of Art.
