Evolutionary Space · Unspecified covariates · London Exhibition

In the digital age, our perceptions merge with digital interfaces to create an "evolving space" where physical environments, the Internet of Things, pan-reality technologies, and our bodies converge to further delineate the profound connection between humans and the digital environment. Marshall McLuhan's theory of "the medium is the message" reveals how the medium shapes society and human perception. At the same time, the post-epidemic era has witnessed the emergence of the 'digital nomad', marking a shift in the way we work, create and socialize. This shift, driven by urban disengagement and rapid digital development, has prompted young people to embrace a decentralized lifestyle.

Based on this concept, YDG is collaborating with the 706 Global Youth Space Community to organize the exhibition "Evolving Space". The exhibition, which is scheduled to tour globally in multiple cities, aims to create a revolutionary form of spatial art exhibition by establishing a synchronized connection between communities through multi-sensory digital media. 2023, the exhibition venues in Shanghai and Berlin successfully presented different digital explorations based on the theme of "Evolving Spaces" in October, December, and January, and the third stop of the global tour will be the "Unclear Covariates" exhibition. The third stop of the global tour, Unspecified Covariates, will be held from January 6 to 10, 2024 at the ArtSect Gallery in London.

The exhibition "Unspecified Covariates" will explore the intertwined relationship between technology and humanity. In the current digital age, our senses are gradually merging with emerging technologies that seem to be leading humanity to the next stage of 'evolution'. Technology and technological advances are improving the quality of human life, but at the same time, our dependence on technology is also increasing. Human beings are indulging in the "life of progress" brought about by technological development, and are desperately trying to catch up and adapt to technological advances for fear of being abandoned by the times. In this context, it seems that the ideology of human beings is inevitably being teamed up with the information of technology. The relationship between technology and human beings is a two-way street; every time human beings labor gratuitously to cultivate digital interactions such as big data and artificial intelligence, they make these digital technologies more perfect and mature and feed them better, while at the same time technology owners seem to have become the biggest beneficiaries. Technology and humanity are a mutual mirror, reflecting on us as human beings in the light of technological advances, re-examining ourselves and reflecting on humanity. Both capital and authority utilizing digital technology, and the people enslaved by the technology of counting the universe, are involved in constructing a link in this spiral DNA of technology and people.

The word "covariate" in the theme of the exhibition means that in an experiment, the covariate acts as an independent variable that is not manipulated by the experimenter, but still affects the outcome of the experiment. The exhibition borrows this concept as a metaphor for the uncontrollable symbiotic ideology of today's digital age, in which technology and humanity seem to permeate and divest themselves of invisibility. The exhibition takes the direction of technology and human development as independent variables, not manipulated by the public, authority, or technology, but ultimately affecting the presentation of the "work". The word "unclear" in the theme emphasizes the sensitivity, specificity and complexity of technology and humanity, and the political and social metaphors they contain will be revealed. The question of whether people have become technologically dependent is yet to be revealed, as are the magic barriers behind the electronic landscape, the filtering bubbles and data discrimination under the complicity of social media and algorithms. The structural issues behind these technological systems are beginning to break through, and the public or organizations are facing equally sensitive and weak issues. Therefore, this exhibition aims to explore and display the diverse and complex culture of the digital age, illustrating topics involving the forms of art in the post-digital universe era, new technological techniques and human nature, and power classes.
