  • Algorithmic Sentience
    Larp | 6 June 2018 | 13:00 - 17:00
    Sentience is the capacity to feel, perceive or experience subjectively. Algorithmic sentience is a physical game or larp that explores how algorithms may influence our perception of the world. What senses does an algorithm have? What decisions do we let the algorithm take? How are these decisions executed? How do these decisions affect our experience of the world and our relationship with each other? What is our relationship to the algorithms? Participants in the larp will play humans or algorithms. The interactions between them will be governed by metatechniques/game mechanics that simulate how future technologies may mediate our senses. The larp will be designed during the week before this playtest by Tim Bosje, Marion Traenkle and Marije Baalman during the second half of Marije’s Sentient Machines residency at Baltan Laboratories. The larp is an prototype for the project The Malbody Centre, a multi-participant environment that is set in a speculative future in which wearables are transformed into body prostheses to mediate our senses. These prostheses, so-called e-bodilies, are connected to networks governed by large companies and states. In this future, people who divert from the norm are called malbodies. They are cast out of society and put into malbody centres. During the afternoon, we will introduce the project and explain in a workshop how to play the larp. Then the larp will be played. Afterwards we will reflect together on what happened during the larp. To participate no preparation is needed apart from wearing neutral dark (black) clothing in which you can move comfortably.
