data

Digital files (.zip, .exe, .pdf, etc) are opened as images (single channel, 72dpi). The result produces a simulated x-y dimension of the file's data using the same methodologies and software in contemporary image making/editing, offering new forms of representation to otherwise non-visual and immaterial objects. The images here are resized, with the captions indicating their original size in inches.
