This Is A Crowd Simulation

This Is a Crowd Simulation focuses on political protests and how technology is used to “see” and “understand” it, specifically on Crowd Simulation Software that employs behavior emulating algorithms. My project explores the gap between the binary understandings of humanness in the software and its users, with the complexity and specificity of political protest. I focus on the underlying assumptions of the software, and the way confined, and aestheticized crowd simulation obfuscate the political agency of people.
