System Aesthetics

In 2017, London-based art and technology studio, FIELD, started an extensive research project that explores the most relevant smart technologies. From an in-depth study of their logic and code, they created a series of five illustrations for The World in 2018 by WIRED magazine, creating a new visual language to make algorithms much more accessible to all.
‘There’s a real lack of imagery and visual metaphors for all these new and very abstract things that we have in our lives,’ explains Marcus Wendt, creative director at FIELD. ‘We don’t have anything that will help us decide whether we can really trust these systems, or which one to go for, whenever there is more than one option.’
