What the project actualizes might be an urbanistic industrial craze near Paris
Actually, through its random metaprogramming activity, this page does not
represent anything in particular, it just re-presents. The process itself
is the acting of the constant (re)actualization of potential architectures.
While the (re)generated code appears as the background organizing agent of
the layout, the invisible static all-embracing structuralist engine behind
knows no compassion but only one compulsive user driven evolution: RELOAD.
The 200 icons have been obtained through a similar process, chance injected
into code, code into perceptual data. This objectivity opposes the renaissance
universal subject and unique viewpoint, hence the multiple perspectives.
History is bound within the dynamic building of a new layout. Beyond this
spatiotemporal frame is like the 'Library of Babel': any salient meaning
is matter of fortuitous juxtapositions. Everything has happened already
in the conceptual space of all configurations.
For random passers-by, this cosmic sized combinatorial volume is a positive
guarantee: no present equals any other, every situation/feeling is new.
But experienced as fate, metaphysical disenchantment or lost local identity,
it annihilates the subject as quicksands leaving no trace of their victim.
