This publication is a monographic book of Andrés Pachón's project 'Máquina abstracta' (Abstract Machine), produced thanks to the 2019 Leonardo Grant for researchers and cultural creators from the BBVA Foundation. 

Through an interactive device, an atlas, a collection of images and this book, 'Máquina abstracta' proposes to see through the eyes of an Artificial Intelligence, which learned to see and classify the images of the Digital Collection of the New York Public Library, visual documents dating from the 16th to the 20th century.

The book presents a selection of fragments of the images that the Artificial Intelligence related to the different categories of the Collection. These are the patterns established by the machine throughout its learning, which allow us to visualize the unconscious of the Collection, the latent and liminal spaces that spread a particular imaginary.
