Search Space is an interactive installation that reconstructs text messages by using genetic algorithms. The messages are being processed through a large body of generic text that resonates to search terms. Like a reversed echo chamber, the system gradually alters and adapts to incoming information until the closest possible state is achieved.
By not showing the original message but its reconstruction process as well as search associations and mutations, Search Space unveils hidden computational aspects of digital information processing in a three dimensional dynamic space.
