My Child, The Algorithm by Hannah Silva

My Child, The Algorithm by Hannah Silva


A living exploration of undoing and redoing queer single parenting and love, in conversation with an AI algorithm and a toddler. As Hannah Silva navigates friendship, dating and life as a queer single parent in London, her toddler and the algorithm contribute humour, play and insight. With the help/disruption of these unreliable narrators, Hannah deconstructs her story, and constructs a new one.

She unravels everything she has been taught to want, finding alternative ways of thinking, loving and parenting today. Queer, creative, sexy and compassionate, My Child, the Algorithm is non-fiction at its finest.
