Kevin Abosch presents 14 animated digital works, individually and collectively forming a treatise on the attenuation of fear through love. Working ritualistically with deep-learning algorithms, Abosch has distilled emotional value from more than 100,000 public social media posts that include the word “love”.
The resultant “truths” are subsequently encrypted into three layers of hexadecimal alphanumerics superimposed upon each other suggesting that that love cannot be fully understood.
