Through June 2, 2013, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) presents Lynn Hershman Leeson: The Agent Ruby Files. In 2001–2 SFMOMA commissioned the web project Agent Ruby by acclaimed San Francisco artist Lynn Hershman Leeson for its pioneering online platform e.space. Since then, Agent Ruby—an artificial intelligence web character—has conversed with online users, which has shaped her memory, knowledge, and moods. Organized by SFMOMA Curator of Media Arts Rudolf Frieling, the digital and analog presentation features dialogues drawn from the decade-long archive of texts—the Agent Ruby Files—and explores recurrent themes, technologies, and patterns of audience engagement.
