How it works?
A camera via software uses a mix of ASCII code and webcam effects, catching, encoding and decoding people in front of a screen. The installation modifies the result of the effects during the five hours of the event, thanks to the different strength of the natural light caught by the camera. It is a funny way to take amazing selfies and to share them on social networks.
What is ASCII code?
The ‘American Standard Code for Information Interchange’ ASCII is a character-encoding scheme originally based on the English alphabet. ASCII codes represent text in computers, communications equipment and other devices that use text. Most modern character-encoding schemes are based on ASCII, though they support many additional characters. The term is also used to refer to visual art in general based on text.
