response: Hello, my name is Amy and i am the human.
send: Hi Amy, if you are indeed human, tell me which is bigger, my fingernail or the Czech Republic
response: The Czech Republic I think.
send: You think!! Don't you know for sure about the relative size of a country and a human body part?
response: Well, it depends on what lives under your fingernail and besides my knowlege of geography is shamefull.
send: Maybe your knowledge of geography is terrible but at least you understand the questions, which is more than any of the machines I have been chatting with have been able to do.
response: Unintelligence everywhere, huh?
send: Is your name really Amy? What do you do?
response: Yes it is and I'm an artist.
send: And do you paint? Or sculpt?
response: I paint and draw mostly, make limited edition artist books.
send: I don't understand. You don't sell your painting as paintings but only as parts of books?
response: No, I have a number of mediums that I work on. I do paintings on wood and those are seperate from the books but they do have the same subject matter running through them.
send: How can I look at your wood paintings?
response: You would have to wait till they are shipped to me. Right now I can't even look upon them, they are in storage.
send: Do you have your stuff on a web site?
response: klkj Sorry about that, I hit enter one too many times. No, I don't have my stuff on the web, though I've been meaning too.
send: I bet there is lots of stuff to paint in NYC
response: Yeah there is, but I mostly work from a combination of found images and my imagination.
send: I'm a philosopher and have no artistic ability at all
response: I like philosophy, have you read the "Poetics of Space"?
send: Never heard of it. Is it philosophy?
response: Yes, its about the significance of the spaces we choose for ourselves, their limitations and symbolism.
send: Who wrote it?
response: Gaston Bachalard. I might be mispelling the last mname though. He's French.
send: Sounds like a Chris Alexander book. Is it about architecture?
response: Not really, it reference space in nature a lot but in a very poetic way. Nests and shells, cocoonc.
send: Sounds great. We live in the era of design
response: Yes, we do but we should never forget that nature is the ultimate designer i think.
send: Cool. Nice talking to you
response: Yeah, you too.
