Thursday 23 April 2015, 6-8pm
Oriel Sycharth Gallery, Glyndŵr University


The exhibition opening at Oriel Sycharth Gallery will see artist Helen Knowles premiere a new work: a performance putting an algorithm on trial.


Bringing together real lawyers to prosecute and defend the algorithm in front of a judge, the work invites you to join the jury and decide the verdict. 


Knowles' interest lies in "algorithms' capacity to self-educate, to learn and to modify their coding sequences independent of human oversight" (Susan Schulppi – Deadly Algorithms). Can an algorithm be culpable?


The evening will also feature a surprise performance by Nastja Säde Rönkkö & Ernest Truely.
