ASCII sutra-transcribing

In this :30 performance, exonemo combines two forms of on-line written culture with an ancient Buddhist practice. Sutra copying is a meritorious expression of piety in East-Asian Buddhism. The Heart Sutra (the heart of the perfection of understanding), one of the most popular of all sutras, exhorts us to see past the apparent superficial world and embrace the greater totality of all things, the void. This performance joins the traditions of sutra copying with ASCII art, a graphic design technique that uses pictures pieced together from the characters defined by the ASCII Standard, and emoji culture, a graphic language which emerged from Japanese on-line ideographic culture, and then rapidly spread across the Internet with the popularisation of smart phones, SMS, and social media.

Cet algorithme de calcul peu sophistiqué mâche ses mots. Sur fond psychotique, l'opérateur aux manettes s'acharne à rendre intelligible les opérations obtenues par un brassage combinatoire confus. Ainsi des images invisibles apparaissent, carburées par une logique surréaliste, un rythme frénétique dopé au scrabble pré-apocalyptique
