Displacement

Alex Gibson

Middle Gallery
7 Jul 2018–28 Jul 2018

Algorithm-ism (or whatever we call it) is the expression of the universe as an algorithm. This includes all parts of the universe, such as human beings and their brains, thoughts, subjectivities and art. Art and life becomes a simple play of brain functions and mathematical forms and rules – which can be much weirder than the norms of humanist doctrine. Freed of the tyranny of self-expression, algorithmic artists are able to unearth images and forms that go way beyond human experience and so-called authentic expression.
