What does the 'capture all' logic entail and what does it mean to live in an algorithmic world? How does the desired ‘full take’ shape not just the contemporary lived environment but our very being, working and acting within it? The conference programme of transmediale 2015 attempts to map today’s complex algorithmic world, discussing the processes, the phenomena, the technologies and infrastructures involved.
