2018 Triennial Archive

Siebren Versteeg

Thoughts Without A Thinker (FRONT: Woodstock) presents an ongoing 24-hour performance/slideshow that continuously juxtaposes a live broadcast webcam image from the artist’s studio with image results generated by Google’s ‘search by image’ A.I. The result is as an unending exhibition of pictures culled from the artificial intelligence of our questionably collective making.
