Control & Amplification @ CADAF (2020) Weaponized Data (2020) & Concurrent Genocides (2020) In this series of works, Abosch starts with a "commented-out" (//) subject for which he collects copious amounts of pertinent and otherwise relevant data. The horizontal yellow lines are synecdochic segments of a line the artist has been generating on a computer server since January 3, 2018. Abosch uses the yellow line to serve as a proxy for immeasurable value within a continuum. He then begins a back and forth ritual in which a series of algorithms train on the input data while the artist reacts to the output during multiple stages of "refinement." The positions of the three arrows on each line are determined by the final output of the algorithmic processing. The top line is the "control" and the bottom line is the "amplification" creating a visual rhythm and highly distilled form of the subject. Abosch refers to this process as "Hybridized AI."
