Codependent Algorithms is a code based artwork that explores the human interdependence with algorithms. The project begins by choosing a random word. Then a misspelling algorithm (which are used to intentionally mimic human spelling errors to improve website search rankings) deforms the word which is displayed on the right. Then a spelling correction algorithm corrects that word and displays it on the left, creating an infinite feedback loop of deformation and correction that removes the need for human input and intervention.
