DISNOVATION.ORGPredictive Art Bot V3.0
DISNOVATION.ORG is a working group based in Paris, initiated by Nicolas Maigret and Maria Roszkowska. At the crossroads of contemporary art, research and hacking, the collective develops situations of disturbance, speculation, and debate, challenging the ideology of innovation and stimulating the emergence of alternative narratives. They recently edited The Pirate Book, an anthology on media piracy.
The « Predictive Art Bot » by DISNOVATION.ORG responds to the prediction and identification of trends, as used in engineering and marketing. Using algorithms, the bot identifies meaningful hot-topic keywords and combines them with ideas for radical artistic actions, generating a wide range of artistic concepts. By integrating marketing methods in this absurd way, the duo critically engages with the question of how art, experiments and exceptions can become part of algorithmic logic.
