TECHNOLOGICAL SINGULARITY (2017-2018)
The acceleration of society through continious technological progress leads to the transfer of power to the machine. The boundaries between inside and outside, real and virtual world become more and more permeable. People are degraded to interfaces in a totally networked world, they become objects of algorithmic evaluation, digital data becomes the raw material of the future. The spread of digitization has been observed with ambivalence for decades, then as now the debate on artificial intelligence fluctuates between utopia and dystopia, between hope for a better, more technological world and the fear of human disempowerment. Our installation consists of two parts: the outer part, which deals with the question whether machines are becoming more and more human or humans are becoming more and more like android, emotionless machines. The inner part contains an area of virtual reality, which symbolizes the dynamics, simultaneity and complexity of our digital society and questions the perception of reality and digital photography.
