A Council curated solo exhibition by Wade Marynowsky. Algorithmic Pareidolia is a series of new experimental video, installation and robotic artworks that explore how our reality is increasingly simulated.

Pareidolia, is the psychological phenomena of seeing or experiencing things of seeing or experiencing things, which do not really exist, for example seeing a face in the moon. Closely linked is to this concept is Anthropomorphism: attributing human characteristic or behaviours to non-human agents, for example robots.

For the exhibition Marynowsky will launch his latest robotic work; Synth-Bot, which investigates how humans perceive notions of robotic performance and robotic agency via a robotic arm that creates music, by playing a synthesiser.
