Morse Code meets software code

Irish net artist Garrett Phelan has created \"friendlyghosts\" -- which serves as what he calls a \"text translator.\" Texts are loaded into a Flash Movie and are then transformed into fresh images and sounds. Each image is a pencil drawing associated with a letter, number or punctuation mark. The images are all accompanied by corresponding sounds. Is there a system involved? Phelan has actually used the once \"cutting edge,\" now-antiquated Morse code as a reference point.
