Machine Data Dreams

Data-etching on Anodized Aluminum
2016

Machine Data Dreams are data-etchings of video signals logged during my Signal Culture Residency last year. This is accompanied by Raspberry Pi video loops showing the original footage shot onsite at Owego.

The video signals are from the Barbie camera, Critter and Guitari Videoscope, PixelVision and Sony Videorecorder. All were captured in my portable Arduino data logger, which directly logged the electrical voltages from these camcorders.
