A stochastic manifesto

March 2021

The art manifesto as a literary form expresses itself through non-conformity and opposition. It declares intentions and proclaims world concepts, not being satisfied with the claim of describing the world but intervening in it and realizing its demands by stepping into the world. The work deals with different modes of cultural production and examines techniques of power. Image of the exhibition Based on stochastic calculations from a database of 500 techno-anarchist manifestos, a single, repetitive mantra emerges after 20650 iterations: "Why do you know our world. Cyberspace does not understand the state... ". This becomes the title of the work. For this project Linux-based drivers for thermal printers and self-learning methods based on neural networks and Markov chains for text generation were developed.
