False Binaries (Black & White) (2008)

The works in this series capture live video of the viewer, and translate each grayscale pixel's binary representation (electronic data) into a black or white representation (visual) to create a binary (1-bit) image. These arbitrary translations introduce the difference between the two forms of representation as noise. Compared to a typical 1-bit threshold image, this noise can increase the image's perceptual resolution.
