EIKON Schaufenster



 

Digital information is transformed into an analogue picture. In a site-specific text-light installation that imitates an unfolded page in the magazine EIKON, a proportionally four times enlarged lettering can be read in ‘computer language’. Binary code is the basis for digital information, the foundation of all electronic communication, which occurs through voltage change – via the opposition of two principles, so that states are generated through the absence or presence of voltage. Information can thus be captured in the easy symbols of 0 and 1.
