An event organised by Cambridge Digital Humanities


Andrea Wallace is a Senior Lecturer in Law teaching Art and Law, Internet Law, Legal Foundations, and Torts at Exeter. Her research focuses on intersections of art and cultural heritage law with the digital realm and digital heritage management. She is Deputy Director of the Centre for Science Culture and the Law at Exeter and a co-director of the GLAM-E Lab established in partnership with the Engelberg Center on Innovation Law and Policy at NYU Law School.

Eryk Salvaggio is a researcher and new media artist interested in the social and cultural impacts of artificial intelligence. His work, which is centred in creative misuse and the right to refuse, critiques the mythologies and ideologies of Tech design that ignore the gaps between datasets and the world they claim to represent. A blend of hacker, policy researcher, designer and artist, he has been published in academic journals, spoken at music and film festivals, and consulted on tech policy at the national level.


A visual artist and a law professor walk into a seminar room to talk about generative AI.

There’s a thought that machines doing busywork for humans are now being enabled to be creative, whereas humans are doing busywork for machines. In this session, Eryk Salvaggio and Andrea Wallace will discuss the realities, tradeoffs, and opportunities, if any, in the automation of creative labour in the visual arts.
