The Objet a and why you should want the heart of Himalayan monkeys, et al.
Single channel video, 2020



What is your greatest fear? Film still, 2020.


Can AI systems experience boredom? Do machines have the capacity to allow their programming to wander into the internet and explore concepts of desire? In using daily junk email as a medium, Valender scratches beneath the digital interface of artificial intelligence and automation culture to consider the existential relationships surfacing between mortal cognition and algorithmic reasoning. The work interrupts a familiar oblique exchange between the human and non-human, human-made human.
