    Aaron Swartz: Guerilla Open Access Manifesto depicts the metamorphosis of an analog work of art into a digital one, and the transformation of the persona of Aaron Swartz and his astounding works using AI tools.

    Hidéo Snes gave Aaron his natural voice through AI speech synthesis and Litto transformed his photo into a living person through AI face reconstruction. All in all it is as if he would talk with us directly through an alternate reality. The Guerilla Open Access Manifesto is a permanent virtual monument at the Artificial Museum.

    Team: Annemarie Arzberger (puppet), Ilkhan Erdogan (VR, Mozilla Hubs), Litto and Jascha of The Artificial Museum (AR artifact), Hideo Snes (AI voice) under the direction of Lisa Zingerle (Schubert Theater)
