{matrix} (2004)

The {matrix} series of artwork is concerned with the conversion of small data extracts from internet news media into audio/visual virtual sculptures which are abstract in an informational sense to human perception.

The artworks have each been created entirely from a single news item parsed from the BBC International web-site (http://news.bbc.co.uk/) on 08/01/2004. From each article, 1000 bits of text, image, and audio information were sampled and utilized as the exclusive material to generate a sculptural form. Although these audio/visual entities are unintelligible to the human mind, it is possible through the use of computer technology to reverse engineer the works and extract the three 1000 bit elements in a lossless manner.
