Stephan Vasement's series ILLUSORY WORLD offers an exploration of the theme of societal masks. Through AI, he examines the various guises individuals feel compelled to adopt in order to be accepted by society and how this impacts our memory of ourselves.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
ILLUSORY WORLD, the series by Stephan Vasement, is part of the exhibition RECOLLECTION. AI AND MEMORY presented by EXPANDED.ART in collaboration with The NFT Gallery at their galleries in New York and London, 11 April – 13 May 2023.
19 artists explore the idea of further challenging the concreteness of human memory—personal or collective—through creative collaboration with AI. Memories are nebulous.
Scientific studies and phenomena such as "The Mandela Effect" have shown that humans rarely recall things in their unbiased exactitude. Artificial Intelligence already assists human memory in the form of predictive text and GPS navigation. One would surmise that there exists a role for AI when it comes to supplementing even more complex memory.
