Birk Schmithüsens work deals critically with emerging technologies. How do technologies that only a few humans understand affect our everyday lives? How can they be used in abstract aesthetic works and shown from another side? Schmithüsen uses computer vision, algorithms and machine learning for audiovisual objects, installations and performances. Being concerned about the lack of understanding for the way emerging technologies works, he opens up new perspectives on decision making processes of algorithms and machine learning. The perception of technological concepts in his works differ between provocative attitude, experimentally objective or abstractly aesthetic.
