PHRASER: TEST DREAM

FUTURES is thrilled to present Sam Lieblich’s ambitious multi-part project PHRASER to be held at the gallery in two iterations. We leave the world of painting and head into technological territory – the Internet – the space of entertainment, enrichment, propaganda and hellscapery that makes up our existence now.

The work consists of a meta-algorithm, a fusion of rules and connections trained by texts produced in workshops run by the artist. Attendees spoke to, with, and through the algorithms woven through their lives, like lovers, collaborators, masters, and workers; the words they produced were used to train an AI that now seems to reflect our communal inner monologue a little too perfectly. This AI entity spits out a stream of strange words and dreams in a fluttering of discordant images.
