This project explores the potential of human-bot collaborations. In a speculative scenario the human designer Karin teams up with her synthetic alter ego: the design bot Karin Anders.

Together Karin and Karin Anders investigate how technology will influence the design profession. Today’s work structures have become irregular and the role of the designer is changing. Meanwhile AI will not lead to a new phase of stability and poses challenges to our future. Therefore, teaming up will not be easy.

Karin’s new born digital colleague is not a design tool, but an equal partner that can complement her and vice versa. Together they challenge various experts to speculate on this new type of collective work practice between humans and AI: hear a collage of their thoughts and doubts taken from the podcast series by Karin and Karin Anders.
