The video documents the installation by Martin Bircher where an old printer type case becomes a low resolution display, synthesis of ancient and new trends of the image’s reproduction. 125 rectangular pixels of different sizes are generated by the reflection of LEDs light controlled by a software written in Processing. Images are converted and fed to the case via Arduino. Due to the standardized fragmentation of its compartments, the density of visual information is decreased towards the objects’ centre. The printed writing and the culture of the image coexist in the compression of the progress of communication that from the diffusion of the words has been evolving in a language that revolves all around the image.
