About this event

The processes of watching and describing the world are no longer the sole domain of people. Nowadays, and almost everywhere, machines are watching and interpreting images that are captured by algorithms operating other machines that are watching the world, seemingly on our behalf.

Nye Thompson's new solo show CKRBT (pronounced see-ker-bot) explores the emergent machine gaze and the unseen power structures that underpin it. The CKRBT Network, created by the artist, is browsing the exhibition space, and the wider world. It uses machine learning algorithms to describe what it sees. It will scrutinise and comment on any human viewers as well. The Network is the primary audience for this exhibition, though you can watch too if you like.

Software development by Richard Hopkirk & Martin Dixon

Hardware for the bots kindly donated by RS Components
