“Grube und Pendel” is part of the series “neo‐magical objects of cultism”, which included several “text-generated machines”. “The highlight of this period are Beckmann’s text‐generated machines representing a synthesis of algorithm, mystics, mobility, and intermediality: machines in action as dynamic metaphor of the algorithmic, their demoniac impact on man, and the indication of this though literary quotes.” [Archiv Otto Beckmann, n. d.]
