Domain Gallery is pleased to present All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace, a solo exhibition by Spanish artist Pascual Sisto curated by Manuel Fernández.
All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace is a computer generated (CG) 3D Animation based on the 1967 poem by Richard Brautigan.
The poem envisions a world where cybernetics has advanced to a stage where it allows a return to the balance of nature and the elimination of the need for human labor. It was written after being a Poet-in-Residence at the California Institute of Technology.
The music is Sonata Movement (After Beethoven) and was composed by Experiments in Musical Intelligence, a software written by former UC Santa Cruz professor David Cope that analyzes existing music and creates new compositions in the style of the original composers.
Experiments in Musical Intelligence works using three basic principles:
1. Deconstruction (analyze and separate into parts)
2. Signatures (commonality - retain that which signifies style)
3. Compatibility (recombinancy - recombine into new works)
Pascual Sisto’s recent exhibitions include Seventeen Gallery (London, UK), Armory Center for the Arts (Pasadena, USA), Prism Gallery (Los Angeles, USA), Garage Projects at the 54th Venice Biennale (Venice, Italy), High Desert Test Sites 2013 (Joshua Tree, USA) and the 2nd Eternal Internet Brotherhood (Mexico). He has an upcoming solo show at 5 Car Garage in Los Angeles.
Pascual Sisto lives and works in Los Angeles.
