Eric van Zuilen – somebody-somewhere.news & The Definition Of Algorithm
- "somebody-somewhere.news" is a reaction to fake news, alternative facts and big ego's. It is a website with actual online news in which the names of persons are replaced by "somebody" and the names of geographical locations are replaced by "somewhere"
- "The Definition Of Algorithm" is a series of books. Each book starts with the word Algorithm, the content is generated by 8 recursive iterations of replacing every noun with one of its definition from the Oxford dictionary. Each book has a unique text because a random selection is made when a noun has multiple definitions. It is the poetics of an algorithm trying to understand itself.
