As an unprecedented collective experience, the 2020 pandemic has come to emphasise the importance of both creatively cognitive character, as well as, universal aspirations constituting a point of intersection between art and science. With respect to the theme of this exhibition, though already present, yet, by unforeseen circumstances, accelerated transfer of digital data, and enforced reliance on artificial intelligence, intensified the interdependent relationship of humans and state of the art machines, making it an everyday occurrence. From the techno-pessimistic perspective, this affects a reinforced control and surveillance of human activities. However, coalescing with art, science succeeds in not only overcoming its self-sufficiency
Are we progressing? Are we fulfilling idea(l)s of our ancestors who had dreamt about bright, rectangular cities run and led by fascinating machines? Did they ever consider matching first something on the opposite side of scale − our invisible counterparts, tiniest of all creatures? So simple and logical that they can be seen as a founding element, as the clear common-sense led intelligence. The one without conscience and meaning, purely existence-driven.
Can you picture a perfect scenery? Can you create in your mind a beautiful, idyllic landscape where an infinite intensely green field merges with the swaying tree top branches of the surrounding woods, while innumerous animals swirl all around? Maybe you also see a narrow stream meander through. Are there people, or they are missing? And, if they are absent, is it possible to picture and establish this magnificent ambiance without the human brain? Without the organ that has been developing and evolving in our heads for millions of years. Finally, do you know what is necessary for this picture to be created in your mind?
