Central to the concept of "Keyword: Freethought" is the creation of physical analogue of the mental space where thoughts manifest themselves as words, sounds and images without fear of being misunderstood or deemed offensive.

About

"Keyword Freethought" is composed of language-based artworks that are the result of the "symbiotic" cooperation between the artist's imagination and custom software for generating sentences and transforming words into nonverbal visual motifs and sounds. The works of Krasi Dimtch enact substrata of visually composite manifestations upon themes dealing with human language as both tool of thought control and the liberation of the self. Within the context of the current orientation of a counter-methodological conceptual, wherein social media and multiplicity are widespread, the artist’s work proves as a visual testament of themes of aesthetic and social significance. The focal point of the exhibition is the interactive sound sculpture: Universal Thought Player. Viewers are invited to express their thoughts by typing them directly on the alphabetized piano keys of the Thought Player. The typed thoughts are then expressed as sequences of musical motives to be heard. By communicating thoughts the way that neither Google, nor Facebook or any of the many big brothers of the world can decode, the Thought Player gives a peculiar answer to the question of how to ascertain the free expression of thoughts in the age of mass surveillance.
