Artist Statement:


    The macrophotograph of a silicon memory chip is digitized and stored in an external EPROM which is continuously read by a computer. The pictorial information contained in it is displayed on the computer monitor. The EPRPOM is placed in front of the computer monitor with its light protection removed, and is thus irradiated by the light from the computer image. The memory content of the EPROM is progressively destroyed. Contemplation of its own image dissolves the information of which it is composed. Realization: x-space.
