my reaction to this is one of bemused irritation. It seems to me to be yet another attempt to ‘automate’ the human experience. It strikes me that the ongoing project to deconstruct human sensibility – in all areas – is a pointless exercise… If it fails it is a waste of resources. If it succeeds it can only diminish us and reduce our spirituality… and for what? So that we can have a computer turn art criticism into warehousing?!?
deconstructing human sensibility…
