Phnesha Marchette Jefferson FRSA

Title: Mankind vs. Mankind 

A collaborative project with my two daughters resulted from a conversation about whether Artificial Intelligence harms mankind.

Location: Manhattan Beach, California, USA 

Creative Experience 

Initially, Phnesha was going to approach this project as a solo artist. However, a conversation with her two daughters prompted her to realize the importance of having different perspectives. When they had a simple conversation during a car ride, Phnesha knew this had to be the best direction to take this creative project. The outcome was very interesting given how each generation views issues through their own lens. This is a Generation X and Z collaborator. This has been a collaboration between Phnesha Marchette with Gabrielle and Gianna Dixon
