Event Description

Juror: George Fifield   Director, Boston Cyberarts

Intelligent Objects is an open call for those artworks that act as independent agents and explore the cross-section of analog and digital media. In this age of the internet of things, where our toasters communicate over the internet and robots vacuum our floors, this exhibition explores those artistic objects — or their 2D and 3D representations — which appear to be responsive to our existence, or at least demand an empathy if not an emotion, that we give to sentient beings.

Perhaps the first and most famous example is the Useless Machine, invented in 1952 by Marvin Minsky while at Bell Labs. When turned on, this machine had only one function, to turn itself off. It paralleled the work of Jean Tinguely and had its artistic antecedents in Marcel Duchamp’s Large Glass. Like Large Glass, the art in this exhibition need not be kinetic or sculptural, it is open to any combination of traditional and new media. Artistic manifestations of “intelligence” may be static imagery, even represented by simple code.
