Meet The Makers

Utrecht University, Utrecht (NL)

Roosje Klap gives a talk about the making of the installation LAWKI at Utrecht University's 'Meet the Makers'. In LAWKI a network of unsupervised algorithms curates from a database of online videos. The machine’s compositional gesture broadcasts a new story of today, in which reality merges with the techno-imaginative. LAWKI rejects the capitalist mode of production by creating new content through digital mashups. The spatial installation invites audiences to move between, interact and play with the screens to recalibrate how media environments are organized.

Meet the Makers aims to facilitate meetings and conversations between academic researchers and students, and makers – such as artists, curators, dramaturges, designers, or other creative practitioners and professionals within the broader field of arts and culture.
