PHOBOS EX MACHINA project examines how selction of images and information affect our choices. Internet and social media gave the promise of ’many to many’ medium - truly democratic communication tool which is free of government or corporate influence. Instead of this idealistic vision nowadays we face various consequences of social media influenced activity at global scale. Influence algorithms amplify our views distorting our own perception of reality and affect our choices - which we believe to be taken independently.
