NEW YORK, May 1st, 2019— With Damjanski: Natural Selection, ON CANAL presents the first manifestation of a new ongoing performance series by the artist. The project investigates ideas of collaboration with an Ai and its integration into the artist’s practice. Exploring the subject of thinking processes, Damjanski created together with his longtime collaborator, Vasco, an Ai based on all the archived exhibition statements of the MoMA, in New York. The exhibition comprises a headset where people can interact with the Ai to create new exhibition statement that will be delivered by a printer. Each statement is a new source of information that will inform the artist’s thinking process. Damjanski compares this process to the biological evolution of genes which is driven by reproduction and survival in order to procreate or grow.
“Mark your calendars for May 29th, when Damjanski will invite the public to take part in Natural Selection at 322A Canal for a green screen content creation party. For one night, you can either download a green screen application and make your own chroma key content inside New York City's only public green screen or send us content before the 29th to project live to visitors!” Any questions regarding the event please email us!
Damjanski is an artist living in a browser. He is a co-founder and member of the incubation collective, Do Something Good, and also the co-founder of the MoMAR gallery within New York’s Museum of Modern Art. More info: http://damjanski.com
