Radio Buncefield on Nicecast

As part of Electrofringe, Radio Buncefield broadcast a picture of Ross River Road Nursery in Townsville pixel-by-pixel, read out by TextEdit, from a script generated in Processing from the original JPG. (The radio station was online for an hour, so the complete picture didn’t emerge – it would have taken about 13 days or more to transmit the whole image this way).

The work was an attempt to recreate a  cold war ‘numbers station,’ only instead of intelligence data, it transmitted image data – drawing an equivalence between two different types of fact.
