Day in the life of C02VF4SSHV2L
My computer is aware of its location but knows nothing about its daily life or material surroundings. This work revolves around a computer’s relationship with a young woman, who undertakes communicating the aspects it otherwise can’t perceive through journal entries, spanning 24 hours of their life together. The journal is transcribed through programming, as it is the closest medium to the computer’s primal language. The journal content defines the computer’s capacity to choose coordinates that convey its perception, which it then portrays through line drawings. Concrete sculptures are made based on the computer’s drawings. Through its relationship with the young woman, the computer is able to have a real material impact on its surroundings. The material world is digitalized, just as the computer is humanized.
