Artist Talk | Tabor Robak in conversation with Simon Castets
Fri | 6 pm
Please join us for the closing event of The St. Petersburg Paradox, a conversation between artist Tabor Robak and SI Director Simon Castets. Robak will discuss his work, A*, which is currently featured in The St. Petersburg Paradox. Commissioned for this exhibition, A* illustrates the hypothetical personality of a video game that has self-consciousness. In addition to this work, Robak will also discuss his creative process.
Tabor Robak was born in 1986 in Portland, Oregon, and graduated with a BFA from the Pacific Northwest College of Art in 2010. He currently lives in Brooklyn, New York. His work explores the symbiotic relationship between humanity and technology using an arsenal of software-based tools traditionally used in the production of video games, special effects, and motion graphics. Recent exhibitions include Smart New World(curated by Elodie Evers and Magdalena Holzhey) at Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, Germany, 2014, and the 2013 La Biennale de Lyon (curated by Gunnar B. Kvaran) in Lyon, France.
