  • I think this is a really interesting presentation. I'm not sure if I should or shouldn't post what I think it's about...

    och. I'm going to risk getting into trouble:

    I think it's all about one single image and the different ways of interpreting it: as a human looking at an image (I'm guessing the reflection of the angle is the dark spot in the eye), at the code version of the image, and as a form or shape to be re-interpreted in other digital media: monochrome text, found images etc. And then all the fun questions come up around how that image is changed by those views and interpretations and understandings of it.

    I really like it ;)

  • Yes for me too this is about image-within-text and text-within-image. Clever. Can't work out what the (graveyard?) sculpture is doing in there though : )

  • I’m intrigued by Jen’s comment - simple but so clever. How do I see? I see this as one of the more complex artefacts shared so far. I say this from a personal perspective as I find my visual perception can be challenged by presentations like this. Remeber the Magic Eye art popular 15 years ago? I needed that explained to me. The third eye I find most intriguing - because it appears to look at you from another land - digital world. As someone who now finds themselves on the cusp of seeing more of the merits of digital culture, I find this image significant. As for the forth eye - I had to look at it in full screen before I could see anything. Clever - very! Simple???
