Photograph Converted into Base64 Code Zine
This zine, published by Cafe Royal, exhibits the photographs by Matthew Birchall. It is 24 pages long, and measures 5.5x8". It is digitally printed in black and white and numbered in an edition of 100.
A photograph of a sculpture, made as part of an installation, converted into a Base64 code. The code represents the image, and the sculpture yet is indecipherable. The code becomes an object on the page. Only the form can be read. The code is presented at a width of 72 characters using Courier; the width and font understood by the encoding software.
Matthew was granted the Cafe Royal publishing award, enabling him to realise the ideas submitted for this project.
This publication is part of the Tate Gallery special collection.
