It is not difficult to find the desire to create a Neoanthropinae in the history of mankind. Humans evolve through man-made extensions and live by self-training them.
This is Seung Hyun Son’s description which encourages us to discuss the changes man-made humanoids would bring to our future lives. He depicts this in “Theory of Evolution: From mankind to humanoid” in the “Artificial Brain, Robots Evolve” exhibition in the KI Building, KAIST, from 21 November 2014 to 8 February 2015.
KAIST's Art and Design Committee (led by President Myung Seok Kim) is holding the third experimental art exhibition based on the integration of science and art. The previous exhibition themes were “See the Sky” in 2012 and “Life is Beautiful” in 2013. The exhibition is divided into five subtopics: Move, Feel, Think, Express, and Experiment in Imagination.
The exhibits are by 17 artists including Nam June Paik, Nancy Lang, and KAIST Professor Myung Seok Kim. The main exhibits include “Cloud Face,” by Seung Baek Shin and Yong Hoon Kim, that shows up as error on computer but can be seen by human eyes and “Brains in Vat," by Boo Rok Lee and Myung Chul Kim based on KAIST's robotic lab’s materials and motif. Also, “The May of My Life” by Professor Myung Seok Kim’s lab reminds us of the relationship between robot and human.
President Myung Seok Kim said, “The range of content in cultural art will inspire students’ imagination.” He continued, “I hope this exhibition will awaken both scientific ideas and artistic sense.”
The opening ceremony of the exhibition will be held from 14:00, 21 November. The “Artificial Brain, Robots Evolve” exhibition is hosted by the Daejeon Museum of Art and sponsored by National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art and Soma Museum.
