The intent of this exhibition’s theme is to encourage as broad a level of artistic interpretation as possible. “Fuzzy logic” is used in everyday appliances and applications, such as rice cookers, washing machines, microwave ovens and automobile brake systems. What these all have in common is a non-linear process of determining outcomes. As used in computing, fuzzy logic recognizes “degrees of truth” rather than the usual and definitive “true or false” (1 or 0). The term also suggests a conclusion arrived at through an obscure or “fuzzy” thought process, as well as connotations of vision (hazy) and touch (soft). It is the space between truthfulness and falsehood that fuzzy logic occupies and that we invite artists to fill. Whether artists respond to the intellectual or sensory interpretation of the theme, the aim is to draw as many artistic insights and entries as possible. This year Southern Exposure is proud to announce Tom Finkelpearl, Program Director of P.S.1, New York, NY, as our juror.
