“Code Chronicles” Explores Chance and Continuity at Bitforms Gallery

“Code Chronicles” opens at New York’s bitforms gallery, exploring how “generative systems mediate continuity.” Eight artists including Ana María Caballero, Sarah Friend, LIA, Sara Ludy, Maya Man, and Sarah Ridgley riff on themes of perception, impermanence, obscurity, and memory to highlight chance iterations. Friend’s gentle automata (touching grass) (2023, image), for example, pairs a swamp-like moiré of grass images with a touch-sensitive recreation of John Conway’s Game of Life.
