Quicksort. Heapsort. Bubblesort. Sorting algorithms are computational processes used to organize elements of a sequence in a certain order. In the last months I have tried to understand and transform the data left behind sorting algorithms into elegant visual forms that could help highlight the unique characteristics of each algorithm and find hidden patterns.

SORTING is the result of this exploration.

This session will explore some of the most famous and interesting sorting algorithms through their history, implementation and visualization.
