Byte Sculpture

Don Miller, Rune Madsen, and Peter Holzkorn, 2010

The light sculpture consists of 4 bulbs controlled by an Arduino Microcontroller. Each bulb signals a binary value, and by turning the bulbs on and off, the sculpture can "read" a written text, half a byte at the time. It is a comment on the principles of language as data, and a reference to binary languages like morse code and computational programming.
