From the binary code of Leibniz to Morse code, from cosmic code to the genetic code, we live in a world of codes. The exhibition Open Codes. Living in Digital Worlds at ZKM Karlsruhe presents artworks and scientific works based on digital as well as analog codes. The works visualize and explain the complex dynamics of codes and the way in which they are increasingly shaping how we live in and perceive the world.
