VT Artsalon invite Huang Yu-Hsiung to hold a solo exhibition Encoding and Decoding on 27 February–2 April 2021 to discuss the possibility of future language from the perspective of digital art.
The world we see every day is compiled by programming.
The exhibition Encoding and Decoding attempts to propose that digital codes have changed our understanding of language and perception through programming languages. With the overload of technology media, the language we face is no longer our original imagination. If we continue to use machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP) to build a new digital language system that is different from the history of human development, will we enter the Brave New World written by Aldous Leonard Huxley, or will we fall into In the unknown mist?
The work Let Me Tell You a Story in this exhibition will collect fragments of words and reorganize them into a story through invisible bystanders. Aphasia explains the unspeakable dilemma of receiving huge amounts of information every day. Drifting City discusses the sense of distance in GeoMedia through digital footprints accumulated over 8 years. Invalid Perception is about the sense of contradiction that humans have caused by relying too much on the sensor to analye the world. This exhibition attempts to ask questions about how humans can find the path of decoding after all digital data has been encoded. Does the world seem real when the technology media reshapes the new language structure?
