Bunker Projects presents COMPLETELY AUTOMATIC PUBLIC TURING TEST TO TELL COMPUTERS AND HUMANS APART featuring a new body of work by resident artist Lizzy Lubitsky. The term CAPTCHA was coined in 2003 by four computer scientists Luis von Ahn, Manuel Blum, Nicholas J. Hopper, and John Langford who invented the test to determine whether or not a user is human and has since been employed as a security check by most online platforms. The exhibition includes several interpretations of the modern CAPTCHA, taking the form of absurd machinery and interactive sculptures. Join us on Friday, September 6th at Bunker Projects for the opening from 7 to 10pm. Bring quarters!
Lizzy Lubitsky is located on the fine line between simulation and reality. She relates more to robots than people, combining physical objects, data processing and virtual reality in her sculpture and installation work. Professional research in artificial intelligence, data mining and simulation hypothesis meet syntax errors, online conspiracy theories, and a dark humor in Lubitsky’s work. In 2018 she earned a BFA in sculpture at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. The summer of 2018 Lubitsky moved to Phoenix, AZ to work on the construction and operation of an immersive art experience called the Lavatory. Currently, Lubitsky is living and working in Pittsburgh, PA as artist in residence at Bunker Projects.
