SWELL Smalls Gallery 2023 Artwork – Canary II

In an era of uncertain possibilities, we embrace the fusion of unexplored realms and turn to technology to steer us and reshape the precarious course we have forged. 

In the past, we sought guidance from nature to anticipate what lies ahead. Canary II playfully explores human fallibility and prompts us to consider whether we should prioritise expanding our knowledge and augmenting our intellect to confront crucial choices shaping our future, or surrender to artificial intelligence, placing trust in its capabilities.
