Solo Exhibition ‘Curious Tautophone, Empathy Swarm and Dr. Doppler’s Machine’

@ esc medien kunst labor, Graz, Austria

„HAL, despite your enormous intellect, are you ever frustrated by your dependence on people to carry out your actions?

HAL 9000: Not in the slightest bit. I enjoy working with people.“

[extracted from: 2001: Odyssee im Weltraum (1968), HAL: Heuristically programmed ALgorithmic computer]

Digital technologies are increasingly permeating all aspects of our lives. Self-learning programs based on algorithms not only influence our behavior but are also increasingly granted authority to make decisions that have far reaching consequences, not only for our individual lives but for society as a whole. How objective are these programs really, what laws do they follow, and who profits from them? In order to create rules for how to implement new technologies, we need a kind of knowledge that goes beyond how these technologies are used. The works by Katrin Hochschuh and Adam Donovan invite to deeply engage with these technologies in an aesthetic and sensual way.
