SILIKON SKIN is an installation with speech bot readings based on a digital interface. It was developed in close collaboration with the coding expert and designer Gijs de Heij on location at the headquarters in Antwerp and remotely Brussels. That chat bot shatters the coherence and legibility of biographical information that was previously collected about Liza. Manually selected Wikipedia fragments build chapters as text base for the algorithm. SILIKON SKIN was conceived to avoid intruding into her gatekeeping function and mythical status in the speedcore scene.
