About HKACT! Act 11 VoV: Morphogenesis of Values
Osage Art Foundation announces the opening of HKACT! Acts 11-13, as part of its HKACT! (Hong Kong Art Culture and Technological Innovation) platform. The Acts 11 – 13 projects extend from neuro-design, artificial intelligence (AI) to symposiums and art installation, and looks to both the virtual space and physical reality in the fashion show for a greater engagement with the public. In their ambitious turn to the integration and confrontation of all artistic disciplines with technology as both artist and medium, HKACT! Acts 11-13 suggests that a pivotal moment in our own societies and cultural production merits a similarly all-encompassing artistic statement.
The exhibition HKACT! Act 11 VoV: Morphogenesis of Values presents new media artist Maurice Benayoun’s latest development in his pioneering neuro-design blockchain-based art project, Value of Values (VoV).
Human Values such as LOVE, POWER, PEACE, KNOWLEDGE, are human abstractions, which live in the mind. If making art is giving shape to ideas, one can shape human values directly from their mind. Controlling the form just by thinking. Each human value can be considered as a dynamic living form. Its ecosystem is the human mind. Like Nature assessing the evolution of living forms, through EEG (Electro Encephalography) it can assess forms and their relevance in representing abstractions and values.
The generated forms become NFT on the Blockchain, opening the path for new market forces that drive the trade of Human Values. From Sublimation to Reification, artworks penetrate strata of human activities that were out of the artist’s reach. Ethics, Finance, Politics, Philosophy become the new playground for artist at the world level. In the curatorial process involved in AI generated Art, the artist steps back from the position of designing concepts, it uses new tools that, in the like of paint-tubes, become concept-tubes or rhetoric-tubes. Curating variations to orient evolution of constantly evolving shapes may have become the new present of the artist’s practice.
