|A MILLION RANDOM DIGITS|
series of prints celebrating the 1955 Rand corporation
book A Million Random Digits
with 100,000 Normal Deviates.
"I have made a number of projects around this book including a
Norml DV8s (complete with website
and repertoire*) and a web
with the whole million digits*.
Moreover, whenever I need a random
series of parameters (often the case in sound art), I use this book,
almost as a sort of unmistycal I
The culmination of this project will be an exhibition that features my projects but also a presentation on the fascinating history behind the making of the book - necessary for any project that needed random numbers before the arrival of PCs - and of course the book itself."
* Hosted on tripod since 2003, beware of popups and banners.
5 prints each, numbered and signed. Plotter prints on 120g paper. €100 each (incl. VAT in the EU) plus delivery.
