Jo Hummel & Ellen Hyllemose - Rock Paper Scissors
The title of this exhibition playfully takes from the ancient game of the same name which reportedly originated in China during the Ming dynasty. Often used as a fair choosing method between two people, similar to coin flipping, drawing straws or throwing dice, in order to settle a dispute or make an unbiased group decision. Unlike truly random selection methods, however, rock paper scissors can be played with a degree of skill by recognizing and exploiting non-random behaviour in opponents.
