Project: Constant_V

Michel, Cassandra, Google and the others

Is it possible for algorithms to read a poetic story in an archive of news articles on digital surveillance, updated daily by the same person for fifteen years? Can algorithms read a similar story in the texts of a database as that which is told by its creator?

The members of the collective Algolit investigate these questions using e-traces, the database maintained by artist Michel Cleempoel. The answers are a source of inspiration for poetic and visual literary creations that will take over Constant’s window.

Opening: Thursday 25 November 2021 from 18:00 till 21:00.
Workshop: Friday 14 January 2022 from 10:00 till 17:00.

Algolit is a workgroup around FLOSS literature and code, they organise regular meetings following the Oulipo principle. More information:

This installation is made with the support of the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles/Arts Numériques.
