As Research & Development Artist in Residence, A.M. Darke is researching a new work which will confront us with the biases and prejudices embedded into algorithmic systems that govern everything from credit ratings to criminal convictions. The artist is seeking to create a system imbued with their own biases, to expose how algorithms are extensions of their programmers. They want to reveal the uncomfortable truths surrounding algorithms’ far-reaching consequences, particularly for people from marginalised communities.
A.M Darke’s residency has been commissioned by ODI Data as Culture for the Rules of Engagement online exhibition and produced as part of the ODI’s R&D programme exploring sustainable ethical practice around data, funded by Innovate UK.
