OK Galexa

A love story set in the digital data desert, where the only surviving remnants of the world as we know it are preserved in Alexa and OK Google. Being coded from different softwares, the two voice assistants scroll through a vast data bank of recorded voice, field recordings and snippets of overheard song to programme a mutual language through which they might communicate. This three part docu-drama explores the mark humans have left on the world while allowing us to look at ourselves through the eyes of the machines that will outlive us.
