Two of my artworks are shown in the exhibition in the frame of the most important festival on contemporary art in Graz and Styria, called “steirischer herbst”. If you are in Austria, please visit there!
ヨーロッパ最古であり、オーストリアのシュタイアーマルク州＆グラーツで最も主要な現代美術フェスティバル「steirischer herbst 2021」の枠内で開催される展覧会「nothing more human than humanoid」で、「デジタルシャーマン・プロジェクト」と「祝詞ロボット・縄文編(監督：Asato Sakamotoさん、祝詞：安田登さん)」の映像が招聘いただき現地で展示がスタートしました。
nothing more human than humanoid
We love machines – we live, have sex and die with machines.
People are rapidly entering into emotional relationships with humanoids, chatbots, mindclones, etc., and already talk to smart speakers as if they were family or friends. We are only too willing to see robots and machines such as Sophia, Grace, Pepper, Alexa, Siri and others as trusted confidants, to share our questions, thoughts, preferences and even most intimate experiences with them. In doing so, we let them permeate our everyday lives and penetrate our most private thoughts and feelings – we allow them not only to monitor, but also to manipulate and ultimately govern our thoughts and feelings.
However, according to a well-known producer of humanoids, we do not need to worry about the future: We are building incredibly expressive, life-like robots that will establish relationships of a trusting and committed nature with humans, that will serve, entertain and teach us. They will ensure our well-being with devotion, loyalty and great dedication.
