the_future_of_human_containment

According to Vilém Flusser such images dissect text into computable dots which can be reassembled as desired. Therefore, decoding or interpreting the world is no longer necessary; one could say it is redesigned from the inside out.
the_future_of_human_containment could be seen as an antithesis to the growing amount of control obtained through omnipresent recording of information, as an aesthetic and acoustic encryption machine which generates its own indecipherable codes. (Andrea Pollach)
