The Unprintable (2016 - 2017)

The Unprintable are digital images that escape digital representation. Built with contrasting colors arranged in patterns complex at both the macro and micro levels, they frustrate the interpolation algorithms that map the grid of the image to the pixels of the screen. As we zoom in or out from the image, the image seems to change dramatically. Instead of the image itself, we see artifacts of its failure to render at each scale.

This project was conceived at a Signal Culture residency and built at a Pioneer Works tech residency. More excerpts can be found in the 3D Additivist Cookbook.
