Aurora is a voice interface that represents a singular form of artificial intelligence that functions as a human-machine interaction. The scenario of the installation is the development of a form of AI that sees itself as conscious of nature. Aurora’s voice is visually supported by a digital replica of the aurora borealis, while her essence is a symbiosis of nature and machine. Visitors should be able to better reflect on their behavior when using it.
