Ofri Cnaani works in diverse media including performance, installation, and print. The artist offers new perspectives on the concept of ‘mediation’ through the tension between the age-old occult and the omniscient digital world.

This exhibition explores questions surrounding data collection and algorithmic prediction. In addition, it examines aspects of digital colonialism in the context of e-production.

Central to the exhibition is Cnaani’s performance Accidental Triggers (2019 – ongoing), in which she invites visitors, one by one, to sit in for a live A.S.M.R. test that predicts their ‘algorithmic fate’: a map of products, words, news clippings, and social connections. The artist considers the potential future of each participant as predicted by their meta-data, brushed up against the crossed wires of automatic product-placement.

This exhibition is co-produced with Cork Printmakers and supported by Artis.
