Artist's description:

This three-dimensional colourful collage uses mainly found objects and is really very striking 'in the flesh'. Real photographs from 1906, the 'Code' page from a 1914 dictionary, dot dice, and two hard drive discs containing the iTunes back up files for nearly 500 CDs. Two forgotten people from over 100 years ago appear in this artwork to break the mysteries of both traditional analogue and modern digital complex codes which may then bring them back to life in the 21st Century. The extreme mirror-like surface of the drive discs also accurately reflect the viewer so they become part of the artwork too!

This piece is beautifully deep box-framed in black wood.

Shipped UK only via Hermes Courier.

Materials used:

1914 dictionary, dot dice, encoded hard drive discs, antique photographs,
