ABOUT THE WORK
SUBLIMINAL SPECIES by Connie Bakshi embarks on the spiritual odyssey of a fragmented DNA strand—the residual echo of a species lost in time. Guided by an unseen synthetic divine, the life form journeys through time and space, navigating between assimilation into and detachment from a continuously evolving landscape.
Seeding a LAION-trained generative AI model with a minoritized data set, the process for creating SUBLIMINAL SPECIES leans on a recursive digital dialogue to negotiate the territories of influence between an obscured source and the imposition of a dominant code. Each successive generation reflects a boundary condition on which the concept of ‘becoming’ is contested.
SUBLIMINAL SPECIES draws from the aboriginal histories and artefacts of the artist’s Taiwanese heritage, reflecting on themes of identity, erasure, and reclamation in a world shaped by the echoes of silenced narratives.
