The Potter is a person who has developed an embodied knowledge and tacit understanding of materiality which manifests as a fluent and unconscious skill. The ‘pot’ therefore announces itself as a visual and material incarnation of this specific form of labour. The Surface can be understood as the upper fascia of an entity - it’s outer membrane - it’s image to the world - but in this way it also describes a lack, a ‘mere surface’, and thus masks depths, structures and complexities that cannot be visibly seen. An algorithm can be understood as a series of computational steps that convert an input to an output, as well as the (seemingly) opaque language of interactions between technologies that unite a larger data-ecology.
Presentations from Sam, Ciarán, and Rowena, configure and reconfigure the relationship between these terms in different orientations, as they pass this triangle of terms between each other. The seminar includes a work-in-progress exhibition, performative talks, and a slide presentation, alongside a space for discussion after each researcher’s contribution. You are invited to spend more time in the exhibition space before and after the event.
