Through various experiments, installations, and online software, the abstractmachine project asks the question of how we as artists and users can create, manipulate, and ultimately enact digital algorithms. If the specificity of the computer comes not only from it's digital aspect, but even more so from it's algorithmic aspect, how does this hyperprogrammable nature transform the media we manipulate - i.e. the images and sounds we design using these machines? Amongst the many machines available within the abstractmachine project, two creation platforms were be presented at the ZeroOne Festival to illustrate our response to these questions: one dedicated to the creation and manipulation of algorithmic cinema, the other designed around algorithmic musical composition.
