Taking its title from a phrase coined in 1957 to describe the challenge of fitting ever increasing numbers of transistors to silicon chips, *The Tyranny of Number* comprises a set of found images, original works and sculptures.

The phrase was first used by Bell Labs, on the tenth anniversary of the invention of the transistor, referring to the byzantine task of designing the integrated chip. Moore's Law (1965) soon took over as rapid advancements in semiconductor circuits created an exponential growth in computing power.

In the work of Alain Badiou, the same phrase is used to allude to a despotic regime of number governing scientific, economic and cultural representations. Rooted in the inductive axioms of set theory, Badiou's formulation of mathematics as ontology resonates with the universality of computation (Church-Turing-Deutsch) thesis, which posits that all physical processes constitute a form of quantum computation.
