Self-portrait

A handmade copy of the computer codes of a selfie.
The work is based on a spontaneous selfie. I opened its data in ANSI coding, which alone shows only an intreseting structure. Through the handmade copy I highlight the personal and at the same time unfamiliar aspects of the codes. The process lasted several months. This kind of work can be said automatic, but also gives place for thinking and meditation. In connection with this work such notions can be mentioned like narcissistic and ascetic behaviour. I also refer to the fact, that everybody’s codes look the same. On the other hand, I show the differences between the modern, high-tech and traditional techniques, rapidity of idea and laborious work.
