Today we live in a globalised world that is controlled and created by digital codes. From communication to transportation (of people, goods, and messages), everything is guided by codes that. Mathematics and mechanics have created a new tool-based world, erected by engineers, physicists, and programmers.
Artworks and scientific works based on digital as well as on analog codes are presented in the exhibition. The works visualise and explain the complex dynamics of codes, and the way in which they are increasingly shaping the way we live and perceive the world. The exhibition analyses the ingress of codes into our lives, and the structures of knowledge they generate.
