凱博．賽達 Keb Cerda
Born in 1991 at Philippines, Keb Cerda plays around with the concept of power, its agents, and the multitude of forms it is manifested in history. The young artist appropriates old photographs sourced from digital repositories online and inserts humor that opens up reflections on conflict, technology, violence and culture.
It can also extend to a critique of today’s popular media where the spectacle of violence has desensitized our perception of the gravity of war and other atrocities. The power of humor to critique society and offer a potent reminder of unlearned lessons from the past that continue to haunt us in the present. Wars are testament to human folly, and the contest for power and domination remains an enduring force in the unfolding of history.
Recently, he started developing a series of artworks that works with Augmented Reality.In the series, he developed his own app ”Omniscpe”.With this app, the painting shows a difference on the screen, twisting the real situation of the painting. By using the emerging media, Keb keeps expressing his concern in power and conflicting which he has been focusing on in the past.

There was a simple miner named Nardo. He has the speed and vertical jump of an average video game character. He could put a thousand gold coins in his pocket. So no, he wasn’t that simple. Everyday he mined and collected coins and gave them to poor people. So they called him Super Nardo. They lived a happy and peaceful life. Then everything changed when the Greed Army attacked.
