On the front wall opposite the main entrance of the Faculty of Computer Science and Mathematics appears a condensed, yet evasive singularity, embedded in a brighter event horizon. Anomalía (Black Hole) brings an unforeseen deviation and an intangible materiality to the Faculty of Computer Science and Mathematics. The term comes from ancient Greek νωμαλία / anomalía = unevenness, irregularity. Anomalies are states that differ from what is expected, calculated and programmed. They become recognizable where mathematical and informatic thinking meets phenomena previously thought impossible or evasive.
