Tracking the Present and Future of Human Kind

Written by Deianira Tolema

Human voices echo across a moonscape; footprints left in dust lead nowhere and flawed robotic beings – they are half human – sit about reading newspapers, use ladders to climb their own thoughts to understand them, and even serve conceptual art for dinner! Their skeptical guests look askance grubby cheese slices and nouvelle cuisine purés of dark blue pigment. What these hybrids (and their creators) have in common is the impossibility of escaping their humanity, their origins as well as the anatomical and conceptual traces they tend to leave behind.

For this week’s “The Empty Room,” our virtual gallery space has opened its doors to a selection of conceptual artworks sourced from various websites and social media platforms. Our goal is to let our readers peek through the surreal curtains of this perceptual diary without fully unfolding the hows and whys of our favorite artists’ unique visions.
