Visualogical is an interactive digital art workshop that harnesses the power of group collaboration and artificial intelligence to produce collective art . Selected to be part of Art Night 2018 – London’s largest free contemporary arts festival – Visualogical utilises word association, archetypal symbolism, colour psychology and machine learning to hack into participants’ subconscious and allow them to visually express what the notion of ‘home’ – the chosen curatorial theme for this year’s festival – means to them.
This gives each participant the unique opportunity to walk away with their very own psyche self-portrait of what ‘home’ means to them, free from external influences and politically charged pressures, aiming to empower people with a greater sense of identity.
Our concept of ‘home’ is continually evolving and with ever increasing globalisation and digitalisation perhaps now more than ever. As such, after each workshop there will be the opportunity for discussion between participants to stimulate critical thinking of the concept of ‘home’ and to reflect on what this means as part of a wider context and society. Moreover, once Art Night is completed the large amount of visual data gathered from this artistic experiment will then be analysed and published, almost acting as a snapshot of what ‘home’ means to the people of our times, to be drawn on as an informative resource in the future.
Visualogical will be presented as an experimental digital art workshop and a novel system of social investigation, developed by artist Victoria Westerman and curator Natasha Gertler.
