Exhibition: Executions

April 28, 2016May 3, 2016

Software permeates our environment. We co-exist in an increasingly datafied present in which algorithms and abstract coded processes execute across different scales, materialising and operating at the micro and macro levels of our actions.

The Executions event investigates the cultural, material and political implications of execution.

Executions


Welcome to the Executions exhibition where you will be able to see and interact with prototypes that explore the theme of execution, for example:

  • The Critter Compiler, a fabulation contaminated by algae—grown by the heat of the CPU—that collaborates with neural networks to rewrite George Eliot’s novel Middlemarch
  • The game Loading that speculates on an alternative present in which loading bars are manually operated by an anthropomorphised creature that moves the required data into the correct place to fill up the loading bar
  • Marcelle, a wearable sex toy that consists of a pair of underpants with modular vibrators that is connected to and relies on network information.
