xxxxx proposes a radical space for artistic exploration, with
essential contributions from leading theorists and practitioners
across the diverse fields of programming, physics, psychogeography, contemporary art, electromysticism, literature and new media. Tracing an eccentric course across intense background material, code listings, screenshots, and new translation, this weighty volume functions as both guide and manifesto for a thought movement which is radically opposed to the contemporary entropic system.
