The competition is organised for the third time, and the awarded works of the competition will make a base of the T-HT Collection that will be exhibited in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb.
On this exhibition Giba is participating with his work “How are you today?”.
This work consists from canvases, automated hardware system and “How are you today?” software. Every 20 minutes, software driven hardware system is connecting to internet and collects and analyse data. After the data is being processed it is sent to automatic robot system in form of percentage of good and bad news, and regarding to amount of percentage, robot is painting a line onto canvas (e.g. for 30% of positive news, hardware is painting a line 30 cm long.)
After the canvas is being fully covered with painted lines it is replaced with new canvas.
