.....The only new work that I have
seemed able to concentrate on during 2019 has been focused on
A.I. (Artificial Intelligence). Its growing influence in almost
every sphere of our ever-accelerating world of opportunities
and advancing possibilities is both exciting yet somehow threatening.
These three images were all produced - as usual – as completely
individual “responsive doodles” as my thoughts and reflections
react to my own particular experiences.
I began with “The Tyranny of Algorithms” back around February
and finished it around May I didn't put it on my website as
an individual image/piece of work as I started to realise that
something was not finished. The same happened with “A.I.volution:
Nature or Nurture...or Not sure?” so I left them both – just
waiting to see if there was anything else to say!
..... Sure enough, “The A.I.conoclast
and the Cave Dwellers” arrived during October/November and my
“trilogy” was complete. I've tried explaining each one as a
separate entity but in reality they portray for me, what is
actually one “whole”. It is always a challenge (but that's what
I love) to put my thoughts into images but then I find it increasingly
difficult, translating the image into some form of coherent
explanation. I know this isn't necessary as everyone will interpret
each piece in their own way – but again, I love the challenge!
..... Anyway – if you have the
time to read about each individual image (I've tried not to
drone on too long) I hope you find them interesting.
