T+U vol. III. Enigma, 2015
Digital print, 15x21 cm, ed. of 100 copies, printed in Budapest
Our third issue in collaboration with the fellows of Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart, focused on the confrontation of mysteries and cultural paranoia. In order to unfold this multilayered phenomenon, we aimed to use the notorious cipher machine Enigma as a super-metaphor for technological uncanny that constantly irritates the dominance of Enlightenment humanism and scientific optimism. In that sense, Enigma as a discursive object becomes capable of opening up our imagination to a new field where the irrational, the paranormal, and the extraordinary are not colonized by rigid calculations, but actually stem from the inland of the computational systems.
