"Stress" in Binary: Detail by rebootmaster2001 "Stress" in Binary: Detail by rebootmaster2001
Work from my Bachelor of Fine Art thesis show

___________________________

Here I used pencils and rubberbands to spell out "Stress" through binary code. The pencils and rubberbands are ceramic.

___________________________


In this line of work, using everyday objects as text, I wrote out concepts which I have struggled to grasp in binary code. I chose binary code because of its simple yet complex characteristics. In binary code, you either have a “1” or a “0”. It’s simply one or the other. However, when put together in a sequence they can represent characters which form words used for communication. Everything input into a computer has to be filtered through binary code. I compared this to the way people think. Everything I feel is brought into me through a language that I understand. The objects I choose may or may not make sense to everyone because it is the mental connection I make when I relate difficult concepts to my tangible, physical world. The viewer may be able to draw the same connections I do, or to their own ideas. These pieces also work as hieroglyphs in that sense, giving this body of work a bilingual quality that I enjoy.

There are bite marks in your pencils! It's the tiny details you do that really make these pieces for me!

This is a really interesting idea. Is this a cropping of a larger photograph of the piece, or is this the entire piece?

this is an angle shot of the entire piece. There is more to it. I'm glad that you like it.
