bitwave bitwave

bitwave describes a series of visual works which employ interlocked and layered bar-coded sinus curves. The layering or superposition of several graphical wave forms creates a seemingly disorganized random order of parallel bar constellations which operate like codes, revealing the complexity of sine waves. In a total view these chaotic patterns break up, since the mathematical system is clearly recognizable.
