THE UNIVITED GUEST, 2020, Graphite and ink in artist's frame, 150x120cm
This exhibition consisted of drawings created through a chance-based system. The works portrayed scenes from a dark fantasy world, where characters, objects, and creatures intertwined in peculiar ways. Each drawing was framed with gridded cells, each containing a keyword. The active keywords, highlighted by colour, determined the elements rendered in the drawing. These keywords were randomly selected by rolling a nearly spherical 100-sided dice. This chance-driven process combined multiple keywords, serving as instructions, code, and script for the drawn images. By embracing a system of chance, this process not only mirrors the mechanics of tabletop role-playing games like Dungeons and Dragons but also alludes to the unknown interior "imagination" AI image generators.
