Spring 2022: Residency Art hub Copenhagen
For a month we developed a game that through an algorithmic logic can open memories of the participants. The residency was concluded by a two-day workshop with participants from the IT University in Copenhagen, the faculties of Law and Data Science at Copenhagen University, as well as professionals from the world of stage arts.
Spring 2021: Development
Research into use the of algorithmic and biometric technologies in 2021. Specifically looking into the use of iris scanning as a tool for monitoring and possibly controlling migrants and workers in the work place, we made a series of test performances with the goal to create narratives within an algorithmic structure. Here we among other things used personality testing systems such as the OCEAN – used by Facebook.

Vinter 2020: Seminar v. Ingeniørforeningen IDA (IDA)
2020: During the COVID-19 situation an increased use of algorithmic technologies are used to surveil and measure the citizens, and these technologies are legitimized and communicated as necessary tools to control the virus and save lives.
This poses questions on what can be translated into code and what the consequences of this increasing application of algorithmic technologies into our everyday lives mean.
På dette seminar præsenterede vi forskning og perspektiver på disse spørgsmål fra teknologiske, matematiske, kritiske og kunstneriske synspunkter.
