An anamorphic sculpture about the technological singularity
Raw Bronze, #4 of 9
150cm x 20cm x 40,5cm
"The technological singularity" is a future time speculated in science fiction. At the singularity moment, a human made machine will design a machine more advanced than itself. This moment will mark the end of mankind's dominance. The singularity is the moment that machines become more intelligent than us. Some analysts expect the singularity to occur sometime in the 21st century, although their estimates vary -Wikipedia.
The technological singularity is only one example of a boundary in spacetime. The sound barrier, the melting point of ice, the Lagrangian point are but a few other examples.
This sculpture offers a personal and emotional spacetime boundary that each of us crosses several times in our lives. It represents that moment when a personal epiphany emerges in your life that changes your perspective for ever. The Hurwitz Singularity. It is calculated from a precise 4 dimensional scan of my own head. I wanted to capture my physical being in as much detail as technology allowed. It felt appropriate to be able to analyse myself at the highest resolution that modern science could record spacetime. This sculpture evolved when I was deep in Freudian Therapy. Four days a week on the sofa blazing new trails from the road that Sigmund Freud first mapped. To my analyst I dedicate this piece. Dr Sanchez Bernal this is the Hurwitz Singularity!
