About The Artwork

Attest you are human (roll for humanity) Game 3 (No.1) 50 random rolls of the dice, numbers connected Pencil and digital media 2018 Giclée fine art print on Hahnemühle Photorag ATTEST YOU ARE HUMAN (ROLL FOR HUMANITY) The historian in me is obsessed by the concept of diachronic and the way that language and culture has evolved through time. From dia- ‘through’ + Greek khronos ‘time’ + -ic. I find the current world we live in fascinating. We are sitting on the axis of our material past and the endless possibilities of a virtual and technology-fuelled future. The evolution is organic but some changes stand out more than others as markers of this evolution and transition. One such change is the reCAPTCHA, a system designed to establish that a computer user is human and not another computer system before authorising interaction. The Attest you are human series looks for the humorous, profound and ironic at the point in human evolution where we have to confirm our humanity to machines. The series explores the possible play on the words and multiple interpretations of the request to ‘attest you are human’ as well as the randomness associated with a reverse Turing Test who's method of evaluating humanity is the selection of nine images containing signs, cars, lampposts, shopfronts and bridges. Attest you are human (roll for humanity) uses a set of six dice engraved with neutral and positive confirmations of humanity as the medium for new abstract works on paper and acts of gamification.

David Aston is a British artist (b.1975, Edinburgh) based in London. David secured his BA from Bath Spa University and interned with Bonhams as a fine art auctioneer. David's work is in UK and American collections and has been exhibited at national exhibitions including the Royal Academy of Arts London, The London Group, and The Other Art Fair London & New York. In 2019/20 David was long listed for the The Aesthetica Art Prize, The John Ruskin Prize and A-N Mentoring Award. David's art practice is inspired by the concept of diachronic and the way that language and culture has evolved through time. From dia- ‘through’ + Greek khronos ‘time’ + -ic. David's recent works act as markers for our transition from material past to technology and data fuelled future. They highlight the profound and sometimes humorous duality of our past, present and future and question our humanity and culture at a time of unprecedented change.  These multimedia works observe our transition to an age where we need to attest our humanity to machines, proclaim our rights to data, virtual assets and memory, question our collective cultural legacy through acts of digital archeology, and explore digital possibilities through hashtag muses. David's earlier sculptural photographic works explore themes of anonymity, commoditisation and copyright through the curation of anonymous 19th century social histories (ULOs, Unidentified Living Objects). Collected photographs are represented as postage stamps, re-packaged as modern point of sale consumables, t-shirts and made into playthings in antique slot machines. These early works also explore the potential for both copyright and copywrong in the reevaluation of historical and personal objects.  In the Muses series David draws upon his knowledge of early photographies to create timeless highly-choreographed photographic paintings which play with identity, place and time.
