As algorithms optimise and scale across networks and platforms, they determine the rules, parameters, and possibilities for those entangled in them. Questioning the possibilities and limits of performing for algorithms, Nina Davies, Sungsil Ryu, and Vivienne Griffin ask what happens when you work only to computational logics.
Sungsil Ryu portrays viral lifestyle guru 체리 장 ‘Cherry Jang’, a Korean social media influencer who offers her followers tips on how to achieve ‘first-class citizenship’. An assemblage of TikTok posts in Nina Davies For an Imaginary Page explores the daily conversations we have with algorithms as we share with them our interests and personal stories as though they were our friends. In Mercy, artist Vivienne Griffin collaborates with barrister Cari Hyde-Vaamonde to create a sound-driven work that investigates the impact of algorithms on the highly performative field of the judiciary and courtroom.
