binary chocolate installation | 2001-03

 

Handmade chocolates are set up on a long table in rows of eight, representing the eight bits of a binary byte. Viewers are invited to take the chocolate but leave the wrappers, revealing a code in chocolate/ no chocolate or 0/1. The piece is surveilled by a web cam outputting the punchcard-esqu image of the chocolate code. Through the act of taking or leaving chocolate, a code is revealed in binary with a changing constantly message.
