This work is a Diptych (96 x 119cm / each).
After more than fifty years of computer art, it is necessary
to go back to the origins. Take a step back. Undress that artist of the role of
Master of Ceremonies of someone else's party, and reduce the computer to its
function as a tool. Remove the magical aura; put it in its place.
At a time when, more than ever technology, "artificial
intelligence", or in general, the artificial other threatens the place of
the biological self, reeling in the fascinated with the interactive bait. It is necessary to disagree with Dominic
Lopes and say that computer art does not exist.
Some artists used chance to avoid taking responsibility for
the final product. I use chance to take responsibility for it. Only chance can reveal
the inner depths of aesthetic mind. The use of chance and selection leads to
images that cannot be predicted at the outset and therefore cannot be
controlled except as fact-accompli. It becomes, thus, a tool of continuous
choice, which escapes the world of limited choice that technology presents us.
Unlike the irrefutable and irrecusable choices of "OK" /
"CANCEL", my endeavour is that the human-one is at all times the
helmsman. The choice is not just digital but becomes continuous. Not just "yes"
/ ”No” but also all other points in between. The use of chance serves to remove
the user from the if-then-else dictatorship and to give him a real choiceYet I have no illusion of dethroning the hidden wizards.
Unlike Winston Smith who was convinced that the revolution was coming through
the hands of the resistance, only to discover that resistance is just another
process of submission created by Big Brother, here I know well enough that
Orwell's failure was not realizing that his countrymen liked exceedingly well
the process of control, and that subversion questions individual principles much
more than it subverts some central authority.
