ARTPICS: Artist Michael Petry : First U.S. Installation of ‘AT the Core of the Algorithm’


Michael Petry artist, author and Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) London, has unveiled his first U.S. installation of AT the Core of the Algorithm.

Previously debuted in Lommel, Belgium, the installation explores complex systems of truth, love and algorithmic proofs. The work is created using a series of rigorous mathematical algorithms to construct a multiverse of small and medium-sized glass globes paired in varying sets of prime numbers.
The installation subtly references the controversial death of Alan Turing.

The Tunisian/French artist eL Seed’s installation Perception, was painted across 50 buildings in Cairo without the consent of the Government who have stopped street artists making work, and censure artists across many media. The installation was in an area called Manshiyat Nasr, where Coptic Christians live. They are called Zabaleen (the garbage people) but do not use this term themselves. They collect the city’s rubbish and recycle it, yet are discriminated against because of their work, and they are seen as dirty. The text eL Seed used is from Saint Athanasius of Alexandria, a 3 rd century Coptic Bishop and states: ‘?? ???? ??? ?? ???? ??? ?????? ??? ???? ?? ???? ?????’ (Anyone who wants to see the sunlight clearly needs to wipe his eye first). The anamorphic image took the artist and a team of workers over three weeks in install, and it could clearly be seen from the nearby Moqattam Mountain.
