This exhibition was designed to feature the view of a jewelry artist who was confronted with a question that our mental association process is now more dependent on online searching rather than our personal experiences or sensibilities. She uploaded images of her own collage onto an image search engine to create a list of keywords through an algorithm. Will we blindly trust the search results? Or can we accept the differences, and find clues to develop a new way of seeing?
The nine collages and their key words on the poster are laid out without any explanation to bring out the imagination of the audience.The poster was printed on a square piece of paper. For this reason, there is no exact orientation for this poster. No matter which direction the poster is placed, the exhibition information will be conveyed, but the impression of the poster and collages will be different.
This exhibiton presented the viewer an opportunity to see both abstract collages and the keywords derived from the algorithm, which makes them realize their act of seeing and associating is changing due to the rise of artificial intelligence. In addition, the art book "PRESS," which has the same contents as this exhibition, has won various design awards.(GERMAN DESIGN AWARD, A'Design Award and Competition, Asia Design Prize, and more.)
