Running on Random is a book. It has 141 pages. It is partly a diary, confession, exposition of ideas. It contains manuals for using the software and dialogues between algorithms, brain implants and people. This book presents an overview. It maps possible trajectories of a specific computation in context of poetics. It seeks to establish a ground within new algorithmic realities. It describes sets of rules that lay at the beginning of each new reality. These rules are a product, ultimately, of a deep computational logic. In effect, it is ‘just’ random number generation. Yet, the magic of geometry unfolds from these strict conditions. A geometry that is, itself, a beginning.
