Ben Grosser – Tracing You
arebyte Gallery present Real-Time Constraints, a group exhibition featuring works by artists working within the realms of artificial intelligence, algorithms, machine learning, big data, and interventions in web-based platforms. Taking the form of a browser plug-in, the exhibition reveals itself as a series of pop-ups where the artworks are disseminated over the duration of a typical working day, interrupting the screen to provide a ‘stopping cue’ from relentless scrolling, email notifications and other computer-centered, interface-driven work.
