The “Pathfinder” Project was finalized and presented at choreographic coding. Choreographic Coding is a laboratory invented in 2013, as part of the Motionbank research project of the Forsythe Company. Together with partners like the NODE Forum for Digital Arts, it offers unique opportunities of exchange and collaboration – for digital artists who apply choreographic thinking to their own practice.
Bots of trust is an installation that consists of a grid of devices similar to points of sale terminals. The bots are specifically designed machines displaying the mechanisms of customer engagement in large online retail stores, with the aim of rendering them experienceable to visitors.
Each bot downloads a list of "Recommended items" from a popular e-commerce platform. The list is then codified into an image, where human-like faces are detected. Faces are printed, together with the articles they come from, mimicking how customers are gradually being codified inside the databases of algorithm-driven online stores.
