I’m in Austin to celebrate the closing of the exhibition Algorithmic Assemblages: Do Machines Dream of Art? assembled by Sarah Norris‘s students at the iSchool at the University of Texas.

The students have put together a great exhibit realizing hypothetical works of art suggested by my piece A Work of Art for Every Entry in Index—Subjects—Library of Congress. See an online version of the piece here. They’ve also created activities for exhibition visitors and an excellent website.

The exhibition closing reception is Thursday, April 13, 2o23 at 12:30-1:30pm.
