Tinkering with utopia in a dystopian city.

Hunting for a new apartment, I checked out the location of a fancy loft in the L.A. arts district online. Google maps showed me some of my potential neighbors – and I decided to not further consider that loft. Downtown L.A. has always been notorious for its homeless population. These days it’s not DTLA only, it is everywhere and growing by the day.

Besides, and to counter, I wanted to share a couple of meaningful projects I’ve worked on during the last months. A drop in the ocean, I’m proud of them regardless.

For the Writers Guild (WGA-West) I organized and moderated my second panel with a focus on AI and the future.

The time to imagine the future we want to live in is now, but can we bring human values and AI (artificial intelligence) together to enhance our life instead of destroying it?

Since we’re still in pandemic mode, the panel was virtual and you can check out our 90 min discussion below.
The Future of The Future: Stories That Drive Artificial Intelligence and Their Societal Consequences

Portraits of Radical Generosity is an 8-part video series I wrote and edited for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). As a response to Cauleen Smith’s exhibition “Give it or Leave it”, LACMA invited members of our community to share their stories of radical generosity.

You still have 2 weeks to check out the inspiring show at LACMA.

Cheers!
