Alg. d. Wahnsinns / Algorithm of madness

Alg. d. Wahnsinns
Alg. d. Wahnsinns

A tribute to madness or an attempt to overcome it?
This book highlights both of these paths:
It is an experiment to describe the evolution of madness with a predefined algorithm and to project its structure onto the design of the book.

In this sense, the book takes us on a journey about madness, determined by the principle of the algorithm, increasingly intercepted by mental leaps triggered by the algorithm. These mental leaps abduct us deeper and deeper into an extraordinary world of bizarre and uncontrolled thoughts.
