“The Geometry Of Binary Life” 几何之二元生命
"The Geometry of Binary Life" - Poster
When we walk into the gallery space of island6 we are struck by the variety of video game characters that many of us have grown up with. Paintings are pixelated as if they were censored. Manga girls try to get out of their frames, inviting us to share the world with them. Digital prints sarcastically mix analogue photography and popular cartoon characters. In these artworks two worlds are mixed: the physical one and a digital one that has been built over the past three decades. Yet, these worlds do not create parallel narratives in our lives, but appear as a single dimension in which the physical and the digital depend on and complete each other. This semi-virtual reality is not composed of unknown elements that scientists and artists have always researched, in an attempt to know what makes life- and what makes art. Instead, it is composed of computable pixels, which irrevocably makes art in the digital era something that derives from measure and construction, rather than abstract analysis. In order to search for new artistic possibilities of digitalism, Liu Dao’s latest exhibition goes deep inside this new digital reality and recreates the fuzzy alternate dimension that we unwillingly but not so reluctantly extend our flesh and blood lives into.  [CONTINUE READING]
