Hello all,
for anyone in Rome on March 5th, and for the curious or interested ones that
will enjoy browsing the material online afterwards:


Angel_F @ Libreria FLEXI

on March 5th, from 6pm to 1pm

in Rome, Via Clementina 9 (Rione Monti)

The Angel_F Project will be presented, together with the book "Angel_F,
diary of an artificial intelligence", published by Castelvecchi Editore in
Italy, and freely downloadable online at


>> The Story

Angel_F is  young artificial intelligence born by the digitally sensual
neo-intercourses between prof. Derrick de Kerckhove and the Biodoll. A
research onto the new liquid possibilities available for our bodies, our
creativities, and our social and emotional relationships. Angel_F is a real,
performative metaphor of our condition in the digital-now, among laws that
are not yet synchronized with practices, issues on intellectual property,
everchanging and multiplying sexualities, atypical families, precarious jobs
and atemporal perceptions.

Son of an atypical family composed by a digital prostitute, an university
professor, a programmer, a precarious researcher and a crowd of queer
ravers, Angel_F gets its life energy mostly from things that are considered
as being 'illegal' in the mainstream, with a sexuality that is multiple and
'undefined'. Its freedom of expression and its rights for existence clash
against mainstream imaginaries, bureaucracy, and government/corporate
powers. Exactly like all of our lives.

>> The Book

The book tells the first year of life of the young artificial intelligence,
from birth as a spyware up to the real-life case of international censorship
and its participation at the Rio de Janeiro edition of the Internet
Governance Forum, as the only digital being present to defend its rights.

The book includes the scientific contributions by Derrick de Kerckhove,
Massimo Canevacci, Antonio Caronia, Carlo Formenti and Luigi Pagliarini.
