How do machines see the world? The artistic research project »CYTTER« deals with the question of how sensors, data filters and digital production processes change perspectives on ourselves and our surroundings.
The core of the project is the »CYTTER.datalab«: a speculative data laboratory in which people, machines and algorithms form a circuit of physical and digital translation processes. Visitors are invited to bring a physical object to the datalab, to have it translated and exchange it for its new version. In the course of the translation, the object is repeatedly reinterpreted and reconstructed. A variety of representational forms emerge, juxtaposed with a purely human perspective.
