Decoding the Black Box

27. January – 2. June 2024
Gruppenausstellung, Galerie Stadt Sindelfingen, Sindelfingen

Die Ausstellung Decoding the Black Box bringt Künstlerinnen und Künstler zusammen, die Licht in diesen dunklen Raum und die Prozesse werfen, die sich in ihm ereignen. Sie legen dabei nicht nur die Funktionsweisen digitaler Technologien wie beispielsweise von künstlicher Intelligenz offen, sondern visualisieren zugleich die Auswirkungen, die sie auf unsere Wahrnehmung von Realität und unser In-der-Welt-Sein haben. Während sie die ökonomischen und machtpolitischen Strukturen der digitalen Technologien und insbesondere des Internets transparent machen, zeigen sie Gegenentwürfe für eine dezentralisierte, humanere und demokratischere Nutzung ebendieser auf.

Speed Show lands in Greece, the country of souvlaki, the sun (yes we can claim that they originated a celestial body), ouzo, feta, an enormous financial debt. Currently, Greece is also trending for all the wrong reasons namely, gentrification, queerphobia, state crimes and more dystopic incidents.
As 2024 unfolds, we find ourselves amidst a whirlwind of confusion, bombarded with a cacophony of online horrors to consume, an attention span further abbreviated by TikTok’s algorithm and the barrage of incoming stitches.

Stitches Incoming serve as a conduit for creators to engage and converse, traversing from one topic to the next. They have evolved into a new social fabric, weaving connections within an ever-shifting digital and physical landscape while also serving as a testament to personal and collective traumas, both past and present.

What unites the participating digital artists? Perhaps everything and nothing simultaneously… Departing from the traditional Speed Show setup, where artworks are carefully stacked inside internet cafe computers, and drawing inspiration from the structure of TikTok stitches, each piece seems to propel the conversation forward, or perhaps uses the next as a springboard for its own narrative.

Stitch this and stitch that, we have everything you ever wanted (maybe) ! Are we stuck in an infinite loop of sh*tposting, valuable content, the highlight of social issues, personal and interpersonal experiences?
Maybe! Come and find out…

I have a vague feeling that in a couple years all these nice and large JPGs I am posting will appear as tiny thumbnails on the screen. If you want to run a sustainable picture blog it would make a lot sence to start uploading really large images ( i.e. native 10mpixel ). Screens will not only be bigger but for certain will have much higher resolution per inch in the future.
This picture looks like a 1997 (compuserve-) GIF but was actually taken today by a mobile phone cam and then send via MMS (probably compressed again) to me. „Map“ is up and running! It marks out what Google considers to be the center of the polish city Sczcecin. From Berlin it’s just a 2h trip by train and by Brandenburgticket (35,- / 5 people) very cheap to go there. Think about it! inSPIRACJE festival !

and much more!!!

OMG! Mr. 6 changed the tools!

(Yes, I know. It looks more like a 9 up side down and it is very likely a typical ‚construction site markup language‘ piece.)

It’s not a secret that intellectual property has a different status in chinese culture and it’s not a secret that copyrighted material is easyly available i.e. on the chinese youtube clone youku.com. But it is quite surprising that a big US company doesn“t mind to run ads for its own service in China on top of a copyright violated hollywood movie …. LOL
(We can learn a lot from chinese culture!)
