Jordan Wolfson on Transforming the “Pollution” of Pop Culture Into Art

There’s an mesmerizing aberration at David Zwirner Gallery, a technological siren that, once it locks its fearsome eyes on you, will drag you deep into the Uncanny Valley and feast on your brain. Occupying its own cavelike room in the gallery, which the viewer is encouraged to enter alone, this animatronic sculpture—a buxom blonde woman in a green witch’s mask who dances to pop songs while facing a mirror, all the while using facial-recognition technology to follow your eyes—forms the headline-grabbing core of Jordan Wolfson‘s debut at the blue-chip Chelsea gallery. “Is this the most terrifying robot ever?” asked London’s Daily Mail. It’s a good question.
