The new series Abstract Urbanism consists of maps generated by a genetic algorithm that, following instructions set by Ultravioletto, open the doors to new interpretations of urban planning.
Like the growth of a crystal that follows apparently simple and orderly rules, the algorithm created by Ultravioletto throws seeds onto the field, which grow and evolve following pre-established rules but which take on an unexpected and unique evolution. The machine, traces lines on a white sheet of paper whose direction, length and position are suggested by the algorithm. It’s the presence of the machine that unveils the performative nature of “Abstract Urbanism”; it is not the print or the NFT connected to it that is the subject of the work but the process that led to it.
Abstract Urbanism is available as NFT on FX Hash.
