CONTINUOUSCODE: Toronto, Canada. 2002 ©

Continuouscode became a 30 metre mural that took a good part of a year to complete and was meant to be shown in the Angell Gallery in Toronto – which never happened for various reasons. One being the prohibitive cost of printing such a huge piece and the other outright lack of interest by those who decide what is art and what isn’t.

Esteemed art critics such as our dear late

If there is beauty in this, it comes from being true to the plastic means--the orthography, that is, of the base64 computer code, rendered into a visually rhythmic paper composition that resembles advancing city blocks, buildings, skyscrapers, digital ant hills…”
