What’s cat stuffed in ceiling doing over there? It’s a commentary on the nature of surveillance the internet subjects the passive humans to. Such are the kind of depictions gracing an exhibition at London’s Open Data Institute.

The show, curated by Julie Freeman and Hannah Redler Hawes, celebrates data as culture, presenting hilariously “silly” anecdotes, writes New Scientist.

In probing questions like how valuable is poetry to algorithms, the show attempts to scrutinize internet culture, privacy and AI with a tinge of humor.
