"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?
