Always available and updating, eating coffee for dinner, sexting about a meeting tomorrow morning… While algorithmic systems of governance remain invisible to us, we experience the byproducts of platform economy in the form of exhaustion, continuous burn-out, and inexplicable sadness. Generated by the iOS and Android ‘predictive typing’ function, the automated messages generated for this calendar month – a form of algorithmic poetry – represent how platforms see their average User. How do we internalise the urban-scale processes of optimisation, measurement, and assessment? As algorithms anticipate our every next word, they accidentally reveal the collective subjectivity that all Users have in common.
