I Know That I Am Good Because Everybody Keeps Telling Me So

The video shows a multiple choice questionnaire, or “psychological clickbait test”. One screen that appears like a PowerPoint presentation flashes with the words "I am an extraordinary person", and gives options: "Never", "often", "always", "rarely". This piece pokes fun at the ability language has to categorise emotions and personality traits. The reality is that an answer to such a question cannot take the form of a singular word and the process feels absurd. The exhibition obliquely expresses a desire to expose the limits of colloquial and formal language. It asks: can language ever be sincere or empathetic in computer-generated form, and how does this interact with the psychological aspects of being human? Ruby Reding
