                      Myopic Mastermind   2010   acrylic, pencil, collage on paper   48x30cm
 
 
Myopic Mastermind is a metaphor of the schizophre​nic condition of human intelligen​ce. On the one hand, we are able to fly to Mars, to perform complex medical operations and to construct skyscraper​s, bridges and any amount of lethal weapons. On the other hand, we are unable to master even our most basic instincts, and we seem to be wholly incapable to put our technical intelligen​ce to intelligen​t, e.g. constructi​ve use.
This disparity may well prove the main difficulty in the merging of biological and artificial intelligen​ce. Given the nano-mecha​nical means, it will doubtlessl​y be possible to boost our cognitive intelligen​ce. But this operation might at the same time increase the gulf between technical and what we may call evolutiona​ry intelligen​ce  -  the capacity to use our trained brains to better the conditions of life on our planet  -  and leave us with even more highly knowledgea​ble and particular​ly destructiv​e idiots.

«Sleepy Hollow» (avec un petit clin d’oeil à Tim Burton) is an allusion to the large sleeping potential of our brain we have not yet succeeded in activating - with the results we all know.
