Just the mere terms “artificial intelligence” and “virtual reality” are concerning. Are reality and intelligence really in need of simulacrum? It’s like a fruit-flavored beverage that taunts us in no uncertain terms, “Contains 0% Juice.” Tasty, sure; but good for our long-term health? Maybe not so much. Sam Smith’s latest abstract paintings and collages, which are both tasty and good for you, capture the anxiety some of us have that massive global change is afoot, and its potential is catastrophic. Is this colorful body of work apocalyptic wallpaper, or the ravings of a paranoid Luddite? Ask again later.
