Are Algorithms Conceptual Art’s Next Frontier? by Nicholas O'Brien

Are Algorithms Conceptual Art’s Next Frontier? by Nicholas O'Brien | Communication in  the digital era | Scoop.it

In an essay titled What Can a Network do?,  Alexander Galloway discussed the need for humans to adopt machine-like capabilities for reading networks. Instead of treating a network as a text—as humanities scholars would want—we should instead read it as a machine would, through a process of parsing. This procedure takes data and sorts it into categories of relevance in order to create a meaningful analysis. The parsing machine par excellence is the algorithm, and it dominates much of our digital lives. In recent years, algorithms have been telling us what music to listen to, who we should date, what stocks we should buy, and even what we should eat. It comes as no surprise, then, that it should also tell us what art we should view. But what happens when the art we are looking at becomes the algorithm itself?

The 4 Things You Should Stop Doing on Facebook

The 4 Things You Should Stop Doing on Facebook | Communication in  the digital era | Scoop.it

You know these posts, even if you’re not familiar with the term. You probably don’t like them anymore than I do.

“Wow, can’t decide between a cruise on the Adriatic Sea or a resort vacation in Cabo. Input welcome!”
“OMG my inbox is so full I’ll never get through it. So busy!”
“Oprah wants to read the galleys for my next novel. Not sure if I’m happy about it – she can be so critical.”

Stop, just stop. If you have good news, by all means share it. Don’t turn it into an opportunity to get your friends to proclaim how wonderful you are. They’ll do it anyway without this kind of post.

Butcher Billy, the Brazilian designer behind the hilarious “Post/Punk New Wave Superfriends,” which reimagined punk and post punk icons in the guise of Justice League superheroes, has given Marvel Comics their fair turn. Because you NEEDED to see Siouxsie Sioux as Scarlet Witch, Mark Mothersbaugh as Iron Man, John Lydon as Wolverine, and Ian Curtis as Spider-Man. And I needed to finally get a chance to write the phrase MORRISSEY SMASH!
