Binary Portraits

“Binary Portraits”, 2014 is a series of Portraits created by “image to ASCII” converting software using as its only formal elements 0, 1 and space. The people that are depicted fictional or historic have a direct or indirect relation with the binary code. The titles are phrases trying to provoke or manipulate the viewer, regarding specific elements of the represented person and the project as a whole. There is a subtle narrative coherence between the phrases. Leibniz and Breivnik are depicted amongst others.
