Visually referencing deep-sea data infrastructures,  Ludological is a device in which algorithms compete with each other. Hyper-optimization and advanced  efficiency protocols in industry 4.0 have led to  a detachment of ecology and its actors. Ludological subjects a tree trunk to the outcomes of a game  between two scripts. The tree is distorted with each gain or loss of its host, ultimately and inevitably  leading to its destruction.
