We are fed content twenty-four hours a day; a constant stream of news, information, and advertising, interspersed with updates and images from our friends, family and acquaintances. How to beat the algorithm is debated, and yet we generally accept that what we see is highly selective, and we are not consciously doing the selecting all of the time.
(Algo)rhythm explores this reality in a different context: an improvised three-sided tussle between two content producers (the artists) and the audience. It’s part game, part social experiment.
This new interdisciplinary exploration, across choreography and performance, visual art and technology, arose from conversations between Joel and Raymond during the Australia Council’s Signature Works: Innovation Lab for First Nations artists in March this year. This is the artists’ first collaborative project.
