23 Mar After the future: A look at Jake Singer’s ‘RGB Sky’
Jake Singer’s solo exhibition RGB Sky at HAZARD gallery imagines the world after the fourth industrial revolution. Theorists state that the revolution will merge digital, biological and physical worlds impacting all facets of human life including a redefinition of what it means to be human.
History dictates that to topple the existing order; there will inevitably be chaos, friction and resistance before a new way of existing is established. We might imagine a world of bots, AI, 3D home manufacturing and the culling of many blue-collar jobs, but what comes after that?
“Space is digital.
Body is landscape.
Architecture is algorithm.
Monuments are megabytes.”
RGB Sky piques our imaginations. Will the world be more or less understandable? Will humanity or its context merely change? What might the future taste, smell and look like?
