Data Data


Data Data is a supporting publication and artist multiple. The phrase: 'Write data, delete data, rewrite data' is repeated over and over until every word has appeared in every possible position. This is done using code, relying on the pioneering research done into the implementation of permutation algorithms on computing machinery done in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The design of the text blocks reflects the permutation, visually fragmenting the rhythmic poem.
