Beyond Blood (2014), Sures Kumar

Could we calculate the value of- and our relation to things in a future where everything is tracked and controlled by algorithms?

Exhibition
Date: 15 – 18 May
Location: A Lab
Time: 12.00 – 19.00 hrs

Kumar explores this possibility with his work ‘Beyond Blood’ by imagining a legal system where algorithms take over in situations when a deceased individual has not left a will, and the state has to distribute the inheritance. He questions the use of algorithms in emotional and ethical situations by taking the movie ‘The Aviator’ to map and visualise the value of relations between people and objects left behind by the deceased Howard Hughes.
