Traversing the Sectors

Electronic Language International Festival

In this age of the cloud and of big data, it´s easy to think of digital as purely intangible. However, data always exists within a physical device, whether that’s the hard drive, the computer memory, or the network switch. In “Traversing the Sectors” the visual landscape uses the 8-bit or 1-bit dithering patterns of early computer graphics, and the visual and sonic environment are together an operation of memory, collecting elements of an obsolete past.
