Description



Meet your party AI



For the New Inquiry’s sister issues POSERS and FAN FICTION, artists, engineers, and God-LARPers Fei Liu, Dan Taeyoung, and Francis Tseng have created an experimental launch party simulation that offloads the anxieties of partying onto the machine – and you’re on the guest list.

On October 13th, join TNI for our very first SIMPARTY.

At the door you’ll be asked to take a short survey. From this, SIMPARTY extracts the essence of your personality and generates a digital avatar that simulates your social behavior, then sets it loose in a virtual party setting. While your IRL self ineptly navigates the Verso loft, your digital doppelganger will be projected on the wall to absorb your emotional labor, stumbling through faux pas and taboos so you don’t have to.

A series of simulated social contests will test the boundaries of the real: Does your avatar make the most people laugh? Drink the most? Exchange the most business cards? Reap the rewards IRL as your alternate self climbs to the top of the party leaderboard.
