In the tradition of optical instruments, algorithmic models are considered as instruments of knowledge magnification (Pasquinelli, 2019) reaching beyond the scale of human perception. The interactive instrument and its accompanying manual open up questions of scale, objectivity and the limits of algorithmic models. Through the mismatch of GAN-generated images analysed by an object detection model, the installation highlights an algorithmic culture of “automatic correlation”.
