“In BEAM DOTS READ CODES the common push pin becomes the unit of measure to construct a robot-like representation of the body. Arranged as bits of information, geometry without flesh, this matrix of data stands erect. Here the body is represented as a silicon other, a keyboard of alternating signals, a machine without end. Its analytic understructure speaks to a future of decipherment in which responses and intentions can be comprehended in terms of impulses. Reminiscent of science fiction writer Philip K. Dick’s, Minority Report, will it be possible for thought itself to be decoded in the future?”

Susan Anker, Chair of the Fine Arts department at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
