Laura Kuusk. Dear Algorithm,

As our relationship with technology is ever more intimate and pervasive, its influence deeply entrenched within the human living complex and our working and living practices, it seems increasingly difficult, even impossible to uphold the artificial separation line between the category of the human and the technological. The influence of the digital world is no longer confined to our online activities: we use wearable monitoring devices and digital extensions to gather data about our health, condition and performance. Consequently, the human body is ever more frequently and closely connected to digital spheres and the associated logic of codes and algorithms that controls life in our current society. Laura Kuusk’s exhibition Dear Algorithm, is located at the center of this field of tension, trying to formulate different relationships between the body and its environment, partially through the lens of technology and non-human organisms, towards different strategies of collective adaptation and subsistence overtime.
