|SHARA JANSEN (De), The silver bullet, 2010
This experimental video deals technological singularity and the idea of creation of an artificial smarter-than-human intelligence. The title refers to human striving for perfection, invulnerability and immortality.
Advertising makes us believe that we can have a perfect body. Technology tries to create man-like intelligent machines.
By juxtaposing found footage from TV commercials with self-recorded material, the work illustrates our hopes and fears regarding technological progress and the idea of the perfect human.
