This project proposes to explore, both through theoretical research and through artistic creation, the impact, history, ontology, aesthetics and politics of algorithmic modes of organization that may be traced already in old cultural formations such as grided urban plans in Mesopotamia and ancient Greece, or perspectival vision in the Renaissance, and which currently undergo an explosion in the context of Big Data systems.
