Less Metrics, More Rando: (Net) Art as Software Research


Wednesday, March 27, 2019 - 12 p.m. to 1:45 p.m.

This event featured artist Ben Grosser, who creates interactive experiences, machines, and systems that examine the cultural, social, and political implications of software. This event sought to discuss the questions: How are numbers on Facebook changing what we “like” and who we “friend”? Why does a bit of nonsense sent via email scare both your mom and the NSA? What makes someone mad when they learn Google can’t see where they stand? Grosser discussed several artworks that illustrate his methods for investigating the culture of software.
