Abstract

'ADVERTISING POSITIONS: THE CHINA EDITION' is featured in the exhibition, "Algorithmic Art: Shuffling Space & Time" as part of "ART MACHINES: INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON COMPUTATIONAL MEDIA ART (ISCMA)". The installation was shown at the Hong Kong City Hall Gallery from January 4-7, 2019. Advertising Positions is a sustained inquiry into the advertising mechanisms that currently fund creative content in online media, and the ways in which these mechanisms both enable creative practice (through, for example, the Hong Kong advertising industry) and frustrate certain types of expression, via participation in what has been termed ‘surveillance capitalism’. In Advertising Positions, participants are 3d-scanned to create virtual models of their bodies which can be ‘skinned’ and animated. In the gallery, these generative models react to the gazes of audience members, much in the way that advertisements attempt to react to our interests.
