2012   |   GENERATIVE

Algorithmic Hermeneutics was a one-year project commissioned by Centro Multimedia at the National Center for the Arts (CENART, Mexico City). The project explored the notion of data manipulation and transformation. We wrote custom software to convert sound information, images, texts, and three-dimensional data into a different medium. The results were shared as a solo exhibition and a limited-edition publication.

The project marked a significant moment in our code-based practice since it brought together and materialized many of the expressive computational ideas we had been working on years earlier.
