Intelligent and unintelligent compare the size of their hands2017 / 3D digital file / / no. 0181 Licence    Wróć
“Intelligent…” is a 3D digital model, but the characters are very similar to the analogue ones, drawn by Rafał Dominik with pencil or airbrush on paper. The artwork was shown for the first time at the internet exhibition space Clicks and Turns. This cyber sculptural group can be zoomed in or out, turned around and watched from different perspectives, but the hands of intelligent and unintelligent always stay in the centre, pinned to the middle of the browser window. The size difference of their hands is, in fact, significant – but how to tell which one is which? The assumptions bring some deep-rooted stereotypes to light. For Rafał Dominik, human figures serve as symbols and carriers of particular values and meanings. The titles – descriptive, or even narrative – are very important for the artist, because they activate stories encoded in his works.
