The project BIT.CODE, plays with the re-encoding of information and the recognizability of signs. It works with the infinite possibilities for the combination of a finite number of bits, which are the smallest units of information. The bits appear as black and white elements on the individual segments of the string. Each string is coded with the same bit pattern, which is reminiscent of Morse code. If the strings are moved in parallel, words seemingly appear (for a certain period of time) from “out of nowhere” and then disappear again. The perceived information causes a short opportunity for pause, a moment of serenity, and of clarity ––– before the incessant flow of constellations, motions, and changes starts anew once again.
