Emerging Sentience was produced for the "Poetry Plastique" exhibition organized by Charles Bernstein and Jay Sanders at the Marianne Boesky Gallery, New York, February – March 2001. The conceptual foundation of the project is expressed concisely in its title: to make a work about sentience as an emergent property of intelligent systems. The original text had been written some time before, as one of the pieces in Deterring Discourse.
