Interspecifics are an independent artistic research bureau founded in Mexico City in 2013. They have focused their research on the use of sound and AI, to explore patterns emerging from biosignals and the morphology of different living organisms as a potential form of non-human communication. With this aim, they have developed a collection of experimental research and education tools they call Ontological Machines.
Their work has been deeply shaped by the Latin American context where precarity incites creative action, and ancient technologies meet cutting-edge forms of production. Their current lines of research are shifting towards exploring the hard problem of consciousness and the close relationship between mind and matter, where magic appears to be fundamental. Sound remains as our interface to the universe.
