    "The project uses digital practices and processes to blur the lines between photography, data visualization, textile design, and computer science. The result are works that serve not only to render visible the invisible processes mediating everyday experience, but also to operate as distinctly tactile and lo-fi digital storage media—the process becomes a means to capture, record, and transmit data."

    Close up portions of the textile would make neat windows, like the Gerhard Richter Koln cathedral stained glass window.

  5. HP printers, when loaded a debug image, core dump to the actual paper. They would print several hundred pages worth of core dump in an OCR-friendly font. The RnD team would then take the whole stack (nicknamed the tombstone) and feed it through an automated scanner to analyse the actual dump...
