Humans Not Invited - IRL, 2020

(Online) Performance | Installation
Software interface, PC, projector, window, back-projection foil, window sill, mousepad, cordless mouse

The installation Humans Not Invited - IRL is a physical manifestation of the permanently available online performance, Humans Not Invited, which is a reversed CAPTCHA that filters out humans and is only accessible to bots. They are the only ones who can read the blurred images of the artworks and thus pass through the entrance portal of the website. The installation consists of a cordless mouse and a mouse pad, placed outside the entrance of Roehrs & Boetsch's gallery space. On the front window, a back-projection displays the software interface in an enlarged format. In order to gain access to the gallery, visitors have to solve the CAPTCHA. However, the software is designed so that it's impossible to be solved by a human being, while instead decipherable by bots.
