This wearable art is based on a Truism by Jenny Holzer. Holzer’s Truisms are an ongoing series of maxims that are meant to spark conversation and have become part of the public domain. The words of Jenny Holzer have been posted on storefronts, scrolled on giant screens in Times Square, shown in LED lights spiraling up the Guggenheim atrium, and projected on buildings. Millions of people have read them, laughed at them, and been provoked by them which is precisely the artist’s goal. And now this Truism “Automation is Deadly” is plastered on a toque, hand-knit, and most certainly not automatically created.
