In times of obsession for work, fear of the robots and strong technological acceleration a new hype is haunting collective imagination: the hype of dull automation and full laziness.

Demand full laziness is my personal five-year plan and durational performance about art, labour, self sustenance and laziness. For the next five years (2018 - 2023) I’m going to delegate and automate a meaningful part of the making of my artistic production by the use of automated processes and deep-learning-based algorithms in order to gain creative production, to overcome labour in art and to increasingly get abandoned to laziness.


================================
Support the algorithm | Support laziness
================================

Did you ever give your economic contribute to an algorithm in order to support the artist’s right to be productively lazy and get real artworks as reward? If not it’s your chance to do it now.

Till the end of the plan in 2023 you have the opportunity, depending on your economical effort, to receive digital editions and/or physical fully-fabricated artworks made by me and by the machine learning from my resting time (see the FUQ section below for details). Both the physical and the digital artworks will be authenticated and delivered every three months.


================================
The machine is learning, the artist is resting
================================

During the first year of the plan I’ve been training the machine on deep learning and on how to rest and make unique portraits of me while laying in bed reading, sleeping or simply enjoying spare time. But other chains of automated process - Neural network algorithms, laser engravers, - will be implemented during the next 5 years.

Demand Full Laziness has been publicly presented for the first time on April 2018 in Brussels for "#LAYERS. Contemporary Art in the Digital Era", an exhibition curated by Fabio Paris supported by Link Art Center, presented by iMAL at La Raffinerie.

Demand full laziness is not just about automation but also about human cooperation.
