  • About the work

Data collection is evolving at a tremendous rate, and there is already absolute information about each person's health and financial status, interests, intelligence, and so on.
The state, politicians, banks, mobile companies, commerce, google have databases that give them the power to manipulate everyone by directing values, morals, and choices.
The series Literary Substance is a sequel to the series Simple Questions, born out of a desire to try the power of sweetness and the beauty of manipulation.
The depiction of the computer world provided an opportunity to intervene in everything, to manipulate, to be a judge, to satisfy passions, to deal with evils,
to be a winner, and to erase past decisions in a moody and unjustified manner.

Okapi Gallery representing a project where glass art (Rait Prääts, Estonia) is combined with augmented reality technology (Gleb Divov, Lithuania).
The result is a complete installation that talks about the triumph of the virtual world and the success story of artificial intelligence,
but also hints at the dangers associated with them. 
The exhibition covers various media and modern solutions and touches on human instincts and social pain points,
which are effective to demonstrate through applied art.

About the Artists

1952 Tallinn, Estonia

Rait Prääts uses glass like drawing paper, like a canvas for painting, or clay for modeling. He works mainly with molten glass painting of the mold, which is later finished by cold processing. His works are unique syntheses of glass, painting, and sculpture telling realistic stories and depicting the world in its paradox.

Rait Prääts' series "Simple Questions" grew out of a desire to taste the sweetness offered by manipulation based on data collection and processing. Representing the digital world, he enters and intervenes in it, becomes a judge and satisfies lusts, overturns previous decisions simply for fun and without explanation. In his more recent works, Rait Prääts also continues to depict the computer world, this time trying to visualize artificial intelligence. Both series talk about how the virtual world quietly takes the lead and makes us dependent.
