Manifestation of a Manifesto
2004, digital and physical piece.
The aim of this project is both to analyze the implications on information theory of layered messages and to look at the digital/real world interface. This consists of 214 individually designed pages, each consisting of one line of a manifesto that I wrote. These were then placed on the streets of Montreal so that the locations, in plan view, form a mathematical statement made out of my handwriting (a un-anti-alised font to match the city grid at font size 2,250,000 pts).
Below is an animation showing the pages as designed, in situ and their location on the streets. For a high quality version of this animation please click this link (36mb).
