REVEALING THE INTERCONNECTING LINKS BETWEEN ONLINE CULTURE AND HUMAN LIFE

Outside The Algorithm offers a lively space for interaction and reflection, with a range of media and artworks including interactive projections, a controversial electric-acoustic radio album, experimental film from international female artists, creative coding, and meditative GIFs.

Artists and works featured include Damjanski, a contemporary Yugoslavian artist living in a browser, and his experimental software called bye bye camera, an app that seeks to remove any human presence with a taste of the uncanny valley.

Chez Conversations, an all-female New York collective, present The Age of Misinformation, a short film that questions the reality of connection through technology. Viral Energy Game, a new interactive AR game from digital collective Keiken, explores our dependency towards our screens and how these self-centred technologies evoke connection yet can produce loneliness.

Cyber feminist Laurence Rassel and trans-activist Terre Thaemlitz present an excerpt from their electro-acoustic radio drama album (with spoken word), which examines gender politics and features Peggy Phelan. The cutting-edge work was deemed so controversial that German Public Radio banned it from broadcast.

More artists to be announced.

Inspired by a new wave of young creatives forging their practice through online platforms, this exhibition will host a programme of creative workshops for young audiences to develop digital skills throughout the summer.

Investigate digital culture, question your position as an online observer; and dare to ask what has this accelerated reliance on technology done for our mental health?
