Short biography: 

Simionato and Donnachie are an artist duo working in the expanded fields of computational art and design since the 1990s. Their artworks and designs have won the highest international awards and critical recognition in their fields, and have been featured in a number of major publications and international press. They received the Tokyo Type Directors Club Award in 2019 for a robotic-scribe that writes every tweet by Donald Trump and again in 2020 for their AI generated books. One of these books, generated after an AI reading of M.D.Vernon’s Psychology of Perception, received the Cornish Family Prize for Art and Design Book Publishing, the most significant award of its kind. In 2020, they were awarded the Robert Coover Award for Electronic Literature, by the ELO for The Library of Nonhuman Books. Their most recent research focuses on new practices in reading and writing made possible by robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. These autonomous-art-systems can generate new works in the mediums of experimental publication, typographic design and photography.
