Blame It on the Algorithm

As part of her guest residency at the Rijksakademie guest resident Kari Altmann organizes on Wednesday April 8th at 20:00 hours a discussion on the growing importance of using, rejecting, or contending with algorithms, including in the creation of her own work. Altmann examines the growing extent to which algorithms and big data are increasingly becoming more important in various fields. She invites prof. Dr. Bettina Speckmann, full professor Applied Geometric Algorithms at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Technology Eindhoven and David Wightman, musician, for a discussion about the science, tactics, and feelings of creating content in an algorithmically linked environment.

The conversation will be moderated by curator Melanie Buehler, curator Lunch Bytes Series.

Kari Altmann's guest residency is made possible by Theodora Niemeijer Art and Science Fellowship.
