Between Jade and Plastic
Between Jade and Plastic is a series of illustrations relating to birds. An attempt to draw those gaps between the eye of a human and the eye of a bird, accepting that we I never understand these species, who share the same habitus inside and outside the city.
Birder. The acceptable term is used to describe the person who seriously pursues the hobby of birding. May be professional or amateur.
Birding. A hobby in which individuals enjoy the challenge of bird study, listing, or other general activities involving birdlife.
Bird-watcher. A rather ambiguous term used to describe the person who watches birds for any reason at all, and should not be used to refer to the serious birder.

Every time a technological milestone is reached, the goalpost seems to move further away. From a Wittgensteinian point of view, the reason does not lie in the fact that new technological milestones are not persuading enough to convince us that we are dealing with real intelligence. The question in fact is not at all empirical, but related to the assumptions we make in using and attributing concepts like intelligence and creativity. This leads to what has been called Tesler's theorem, which states that: Artificial intelligence is what- ever has not been done yet (or, conversely, intelligence is whatever machines have not done yet).(Emanuele, 2020)
If simple, non-human processes can generate an aesthetic object, perhaps we are giving too much weight to the notion of "human".（Lev, 2021）
