#Meet the Algorithms
With this 'psychotic building', Rob Voerman investigates the increasing madness that is thriving on the Internet, fed by fake news and conspiracy theories. The installation shows a spatial collage of images related to various conspiracy theories, found on the fringes of the Internet. At the foot of this collage, a dystopian world of chaos and anarchy arises, including a building that resembles an explosion of glass and cardboard. The title of the work refers to the publication of Plato, with the allegory of the cave. More and more people are adhering to their own truth, thus claiming to have found an exit from Plato's cave.
