Matthew Plummer-Fernandez

Algorithms are all around us, but usually they know their place; nicely hidden behind the black-boxed smooth interfaces. Sometimes, however, they poke out their binary heads and pop up in everyday life.

Date: 16 May
Location: Volkshotel
Time: 10.00 – 18.00 hrs

Also part of this panel: Matthias Tarasiewicz/ Filip Visnjic / more to be announced

Matthew Plummer-Fernandez knows how to spot them and collects these appearances on his Tumblr, Algopop. In this talk he will guide us through a selection of his findings, sharing the most useful, useless, funny and entertaining algorithms found on the World Wide Web.

British/Colombian artist and researcher Matthew Plummer-Fernandez critically and playfully examines socio-cultural entanglements with technologies. His current interests span algorithms, bots, automation, copyright and file-sharing. Inspired by encryption roto machines such as the infamous Enigma Machine, he created the application ‘Disarming Corruptor’ which was awarded a Prix Ars Electronica Award of Distinction. He holds a BEng in Computer Aided Mechanical Engineering from Kings College London and an MA in Design Products from the Royal College of Art.

With the support of The New Institute Visitors Programme.
