Do systems enslave or liberate the individual? — a systematic questioning of the landscape of algorithmic procedure. A study built around the multivalent nature of the question at hand — building an argument and counterargument towards both ends. What makes systems into a faceted concept is their demand from the users themselves. One has to manipulate the system to fit their own needs. The grid system of the essay suggests a fixed structure while also giving way to a modular approach. The reader is encouraged to consider the syntax of the text and image and create their own order within the system — to choose their own outcome. This presented outcome is just a possible arrangement of thought within a greater system of possibilities.
