Abstract Quantifying the Everyday: generative numerical methodologies in the creation of the artwork is a practice-led inquiry that celebrates and critiques the processes and structures of enumeration that organise and determine our experience of daily life. The studio research emulates processes of quantitative reasoning, collecting information, recording data, processing figures, interpreting information, and creating modes of encounter and engagement, and applying them as an embodied artistic methodology. These processes are emphasised in the PhD and constitute the frame of reference for investigating generative numerical methodologies in the creation of the artwork.

The research project accumulated in an exhibition that embeds the enumeration of lived experience into the final works to explore the form that art can take when existence is mediated through numerical processes and the future determined through statistical means.
