Data


2012

Data is an assemblage of plexiglass and paper suspended above the floor of the exhibition space. The artist designed a three-dimensional multimedia installation in the shape of a cloud. Many characters are projected onto the middle of the dangling plexiglass such as: @, $, +, #, &, *, =, %, 1, 3, 5, 7… The numbers are interchanged at random, producing a continuous stream of flickering lights. Philippe Safire focuses on the movement and constant exchange of information (codes, algorithms, emails, texts, backups, updates, etc…) as suggested by the title of the work.
