Pamela Davis Kivelson is a multi-media artist, painter, and performer, currently focused on using AI art to communicate and address how technological change is shaping our world.
Her work focuses on what it means to challenge our collective biases and inferences through art. Machine learning, Mobility, and new technologies need art to keep them human. Non Linear identities (NLI) brings this concept to life through iteration, and experimentation. Artificial intelligence allows Davis Kivelson to create a novel visual language that challenges stereotypes, especially those about inclusion, identity, equality, and trust.

Artificial intelligence allows Davis Kivelson to create a novel visual language that challenges stereotypes, especially those about inclusion, identity and trust. One current project, with Volvo Group where she is artist in residence supported by Vinnova she has been working on using NLP to create bollard sculptures for future smart cites sites.
Her public art, consisting of sculpture, paintings, and photos, hangs in eight different buildings on the Stanford campus, 40 different works in all. She was artist-in-residence to the Humanities and Sciences at Stanford University for four years. Currently she is a lecturer in the design program and artist in residence to The Compression forum in engineering. She is also artist in residence to the Churchill Club, s.v.a.i, Brahe Foundation, and Volvo Group.
Some of her past projects:
The Non-Binary Identity exhibit: Stockholm University 2019.
An exhibit and performance Davis Kivelson did with filmmaker Robin Swicord at Pace for Art and Technology was, “PitchingX.” That piece fused art, film, theatre, and technology to explore the emotions involved in the Silicon Valley pitch.
The 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics inspired Davis Kivelson's multimedia art/performance “Drawing with Gravitational Waves.” That performance interwove improvisational, live, classical violin music with drawing and discussions. See this short video and article in the Stanford News.
Another sculpture was part of a performance work at Bing Concert hall at Stanford University. See: “Drawing with Tetrahedra.” The sculpture itself will soon be on display at Quantum Institute at UBC in Vancouver, Canada.
More recently Davis Kivelson and her collaborators created a video installation called : :Breadcrumbs for the Nordic Innovation House in PA California about the trail of information we leave in cyberspace. See: https://vimeo.com/pamdk
