Algorithmic Rituals


Friday, Sept 15 | 5pm & 8pm


Contemporary Calgary
701 11 St SW
Calgary, AB

Experience Algorithmic Rituals, a 45-minute interactive art piece by Kathryn Blair, where we collectively contemplate our place in a computer-driven world. Through movement and conversation prompts, we explore how algorithms shape our lives and bodies, seeking to reclaim agency within these systems. Using a flowchart based on our interactions with decision-making systems, Kathryn generates movements that merge together, revealing patterns and sparking reflection. Culminating in a collaborative, improvised dance, Algorithmic Rituals invites us to ponder the impact of technology on social media, search engines, healthcare, and employment. Join us in this transformative journey, where movement, conversation, and creative expression converge to provoke thought, reimagine our relationship with the digital realm, and discover new pathways to empowerment.
