New Media: Digital on Wood.
Spiller, internationally recognised in the area of net. art, has produced a graphic oeuvre of machine-generated images. His Laboro device (Latin for 'work'), made on the principle of the CNC machines used in serial production, employs a repetitive, rhythmic motion to leave grooves, holes, dots, and lines that create images.
In/ Form/ations transforms well-known web pages (in this case bank.com) into reliefs. Spiller explores subtle but complex shortcomings created by digitisation with its matrix approach. Because every hole represents a letter from the web page, as defined by its depth, a material artefact emerges from the non-material flow of digital data. Different shadows produced by different depths create a dynamic flickering as in the world of screens. Semantically, the word " information" suggests data hidden 'in form'. The structure of wood provides an excellent example: it is a chronography of the climatic and biological conditions in which the tree developed. Plywood is an industrial composite glued together in a rhythmic collage.
Exhibited also at 30th Biennial of Graphic Arts in Ljubljana
