Abstract or Description

This chapter is an attempt to articulate, through the lens of the fold, the development of a computational arts practice. It draws on Deleuze’s reading of Leibniz through The Fold (Deleuze [1988] 2006), and the concept of the superfold and the co-evolution of humanity with technology (Deleuze [1986] 1988). An overarching concern here is the making of art within societies of control (Deleuze [1990] 1995).
