Abstract: ... The design of the catalogue is based on the most simple form of computation: numbering. Yet, in a reversal of standard technology, every single one of the 48,000 total pages of this catalogue was hand-numbered by students, staffers and designers in a couple of day-long sessions over the course of a full year. But this catalogue is not just the product of social computation and processual design, but continues to process while you are reading it. The charcoal pigments of the page numbers crumble, gradually contaminating the pages. ... /Florian Cramern\With contributions by Dennis de Bel, Marc Chia, Timo Klok, Alexandre Leray, Leonie Urff, St├ęphanie Vilayphiou, Serena Williams, Sauli Warmenhoven, Florian Cramer, Arie Altena, Aymeric Mansoux.
