Futile Labour is an exhibition/installation that calls attention to the growing phenomenon of manipulating and engineering life. The exhibition presents the relics and apparatus of a “living machine” – a tissue engineered muscle that is housed and fed inside a custom designed vessel. Through electrical stimulation, the muscle cells contract and their resulting movement is translated into humanly perceivable sensations: vibration, light and sound. This performance and the resulting sensations is autonomously influenced and directed by the movement of the cells, all in real time in the gallery space.

Currently, courts and corrections departments around the US use algorithms to determine a defendant’s “risk”, which ranges from the probability that an individual will commit another crime to the likelihood a defendant will appear for his or her court date. These algorithmic outputs inform decisions about bail, sentencing, and parole. Each tool aspires to improve on the accuracy of human decision-making that allows for a better allocation of finite resources.

Everybody is Somebody’s Terrorist is a series of hand knit balaclavas representing a variety of socio, economic, or political groups that someone might consider terrorist. Each mask is the subject of a series of photo essays and videos that explores our relationship to that group and the ideologies it represents as well as our comfort level with extremity of the label of terrorist.

The latest paper shows that some more troubling implicit biases seen in human psychology experiments are also readily acquired by algorithms. The words “female” and “woman” were more closely associated with arts and humanities occupations and with the home, while “male” and “man” were closer to maths and engineering professions.

Hoy analiza en su tercer laboratorio el impacto del calentamiento global sobre las plantas, desenterrando hojas fosilizadas hace 50 millones de años para saber, entre otras cosas, cómo sobrevivían durante meses en la oscuridad. De paso explica cómo funciona un espectrómetro, cómo sobreviven las plantas sin poder huir del peligro, cómo infectan las bacterias un tubo de hospital y qué nutrición nos ofrecerá un boniato cuando la temperatura empiece a subir de verdad.
