Post Photographic Perspectives II: Acceptable Realities is Fellowship's second group show celebrating a new wave of innovation in AI video and photography.
In 1963, Nam June Paik (1932 - 2006), a video artist associated with the Fluxus movement, provocatively placed a real cow's head at the entrance of one of her exhibitions. The head jolted visitors out of their perceptual lethargy, transporting them into an altered state of consciousness, and enabling them to engage with the exhibited works with a renewed vision. Inspired by Paik’s gesture, I seek to imbue this project, “Fluxus” with a similar function by subjecting myself, the AI, and the viewer to a cathartic shock.
Typically, my images emerge as unfiltered outputs, rarely subject to modification or retouching, save for the occasional blemish or border adjustment. Respecting the vision and imprint of the algorithm is paramount to me; its errors often unveil unforeseen triumphs.
