          Abstract

          This paper and demonstration shows how the procedure of creating an electronic visualisation of some particular existing classic algorithmic artworks can give a better and deeper understanding of the original work and, as it happened in the case study, allows to find mistakes that weren’t previously identified by historians, critics or researchers. This study is grounded on a case study that identified a mistake on one of the most widely spread documents that integrate Sol LeWitt’s masterpiece “Variations of incomplete open cubes”. In the contemporary context of digital and electronic technologies, that feed cultural superficiality, this study purposes that re-coding early algorithmic artworks can–besides being a great learning method for coding and thinking–give a deeper understanding about the thoughts and practices of the original piece authors.
