An algorithm for art
Are machines making humans act more like machines? Head of Education at ARKEN Museum of Modern Art, Katrine Pedersen knows how to look at the world in a different way. With eyes glued to smartphones, have we evolved to become “Phonosapians”? Katrine takes us inside the Art & Tech Lab, where she encourages you to re-code computers with human algorithms. What happens when we code for humanity, instead of for machinery? Computers can’t always see what art can show. Art creates pathways for subversion, for political understanding, for solidarity among coalition builders. Art teaches us that lives other than our own have value.
