Cover Art: Ai-Da is the world’s first ultra-realistic artist robot. Created in February 2019 by Aidan Meller, she had her first solo show at the University of Oxford, called ‘Unsecured Futures’. She has since travelled and exhibited work internationally, and shown her art at many major museums. She continues to create art that challenges our notions of living in a post-humanist era.
