The Black Box is a 3 metre tall monoliths that spits out a piece of paper on average once a minute. On this paper are “instructions” in text and visual form, generated by a machine learning algorithm. The visitor is invited to take a piece of paper that resonates with them and use it in whatever way they see fit.
The Black Box references black box systems “which can be viewed in terms of their inputs and outputs without any knowledge of its internal workings.”
Part of the Instructions for Humans exhibition running at Birmingham Open Media, September - December 2017.
