Transmission Lineage

Derek Faust, Transmission Lineage, 2009

Two of a series of twenty-three prints are pictured above.

Looking at the way we store information can be a portal into looking at how we perceive ourselves. From the processes we use to infuse materials with data, to the way we archive information, we distinctly value some information more than others. My work grapples with these information systems through an investigation of their physical and visual language. Be it a dot and dash of Morse code or the notched holes inside a cassette tape there is a language that has a direct lineage to our own self-image.
