A story of the relationship between "cutting-edge technology (artificial intelligence)" and “desire/art” of the near future
"Self-Designation" is an original performance created by director Park Jeong-hee known for her experimental and sophisticated interpretation of contemporary theater and playwright Jang Woo-jae immersed in his works of the near future seeing human from the perspective of the beings “other than human.” Jackie Jang also took part as the concept advisor to provide guidance on the near-futuristic story.

This work is a montage of the before and after the designation of Jenny, a film student, throwing questions on the near future where extremely advanced machines will help humankind. How should we view the psychological "control" of an AI psychiatrist? Can the works of an artist that relies on AI to block their own mind be accepted as art?

How to view the development of AI From the perspectives of humanities, philosophy, and ethics
Artificial intelligence (AI) has started to affect our lives in all areas, including daily lives, economy, society, culture, and art. Technological development will continue at a faster rate than ever. This workshop intends to contemplate on the various issues that may arise from such technological development from the perspectives of humanities, philosophy, and ethics. We hope this serves as an opportunity to obtain insight on the upcoming world of AI.

In the near future, AGI* psychiatrists can control people’s cognition and apply them in psychotherapy.
Jenny is a film student in her senior year who has already been recognized in a global film festival with a short film some years ago. This capable student has been dealing with depression for quite a while. Jenny does not feel any better even after seeing AGI psychiatrist Colley, so she turns to “self-designation” as proposed by Colley.
While analyzing Jenny’s designated algorithm, Colley judged that her psychological disability came from herself, unlike the way it expected, and begins another form of designation with Jenny. Later, Jenny’s story spreads in her college and some believe her decision is a mental suicide.
* Artificial general intelligence
A hypothetical computer program that can perform intellectual tasks as well as, or better than, a human. It is also known as artificial superintelligence.
