EXHIBITION DATES: 03/28/2019 - 05/17/2019
CURRENTLY BASED: SAN FRANCISCO, CA
We proudly present Re-Engineering Humanity @836M, a group exhibition organized by YESUNIVERSE and curated by Lady PheOnix. A cautionary tale for the twenty-first century, the exhibition examines a range of contemporary issues shaping how reality is manufactured and understood. Featuring works by Anthony Akinbola, Stuart “Sutu” Campbell, Max Cooper, Paul D. Miller (DJ Spooky), Marjan Moghaddam, Mark “Digital” Sabb, John Sanborn, Samira Idroos, and Lady PheOnix, Re-Engineering Humanityinvites us to take a closer look at the social engineering that organizes human thought.
Composed of a constellation of perspectives signaling present societal dissonances, Re-Engineering Humanity is presented in three interconnected forms: a gallery exhibition, a series of public programs, and an interactive catalog. The exhibition aims to lay bare the silent messages of social engineering by extracting our interpretations, perceptions, and beliefs of embedded systems of control. It addresses augmented reality as a new form of communication, shifting cultural norms, and narcissistic approaches to existence due to constant engagement with social media. We’re living in a time where truth has been diluted, and fake news competes with reality- a shift in human history whose impacts are yet to be fully understood. Instability through social engineering has become a defining feature of the 21st century.
836M presented this six-month exhibition in two phases: Phase One, Re-Engineering Humanity, highlighted by augmented reality works; Phase Two offered computational pieces made with artificial intelligence. AI will soon be present in all aspects of our lives, from the cradle to the grave.
