The installation 0.30402944246776265 offers an imagined social network
where computers (nodes) represent people (other kinds of nodes), and
network cables represent the ties connecting them. Within the visual
component brought to the monitor screens, the bubbles represent active
nodes, while the lines represent activity among them. The square
represents the node itself.
The installation suggests the possible creativity of the machine and the
notion that humanity is approaching a state of artificial intelligence
or post-humanity. The viewer is provoked to consider the place of the
machine in society, as well as the ways and strategies in which a
computing machine is developed. These issues lead to further questions
of transparency in merged computer and human environments, surveillance
mechanisms used in artificial networks, and the decision-making and
ethics of the machine.
