Alchorisma alludes to the relationships between algorithms, charisma, rhythm, alchemy and karma. It looks at integrating cosmogenetic views with the charisma surrounding technology, at ways to infect existing algorithmic models with ideologies that acknowledge the importance of co-existence with non-human entities.

This platform emerged out of the collective energies during two Alchorisma worksessions organised by Z33 and Constant. It gathers ideas, tests and prototypes developed during the worksessions. Worksessions are Constant's intensive trans-disciplinary situations to which participants from all over the world contribute. They function as a temporary research lab; a collective working environment where different types of expertise come into contact with each other. During work sessions we develop ideas and prototypes. The first worksession took place from 2 till 8 December 2018 at Z33 in Hasselt, Belgium. The second worksession was organised from 24 to 29 August 2020 in the family house of Anne-Laure Buisson in Beaulieu, Vercors, France.
