Interaction designer Gary Boodhoo uses software, stagecraft and game design to make pictures of minds.

A Jamaican-born machine learning advocate and enthusiast, his work turns neural networks inside out to uncover a storehouse of collective memories. "When real AI transforms the world, how will human nature also transform?" Boodhoo asks. His creative practice records emotional connections to objects that viewers can no longer distinguish from themselves.

Audiences have described his work as science fiction cave painting owing to its freeform roleplay and psychedelic imagery. His video installations have appeared at conferences and festivals around the Bay Area. Boodhoo has a background in game development and is the founder of the design studio Synthetic-AF.
