London’s Banner Repeater is hosting a talk by technology and media writer Mercedes Bunz, running as part of the Low Animal Spirits exhibition on October 23.
Driven by real-time data and derived from text sourced from global news feeds, Richard Cochrane and (Banner Repeater founder) Ami Clarke‘s Low Animal Spirits explores the theory of probability and the phenomena of ‘low animal spirits’, or mass dips in confidence, that illustrate mass mentality, and Bunz uses this idea to examine life “in a world in which technology has become our second nature”.
The author of The Silent Revolution: How Algorithms Changed Knowledge, Work, Journalism, and Politics Without Making Too Much Noise attempts to “map out areas in the knowledge landscape of today” and to examine how these algorithms affect knowledge in the public sphere.
