The photograph of Drax Power Station is created using binary code; the language of computing, 1’s and 0’s. The specific code that is used in this piece is a direct translation of all of the artists’ online activity and communication during the course of a single day, drawing attention to the vast amount of digital information that is stored, recorded and available every second.
This piece was created in collaboration with Dr Emma Williams, Vice Chancellor's Fellow in Digital Innovation and Wellbeing, School of Experimental Psychology, University of Bristol, as part of Creative Reactions Exhibition. Our aim with this piece was to consider the contrast the internet proposes between dark and light, balancing opportunity and threat, benefit and risk. And we encourage people to consider their own digital life in relation to this.
