Condensations of Algorithmic Spaces

The iterative nature of al algorithms, their provisions of repetitions and the possibility to rerun them, lead to a straight concept of algorithmic space, as the breadth and organisation of all the forms they are able to produce. But with the infintiy of this production, we would be rather left with a desert for which a strategy of selection, orientation and inhabitation must still be found. Perhaps then, it would be more useful to look at algorithmic agency as defining another type of a space, where particular ways of condensation occur at the interface between human and machine.
