unicode infinite

unicode infinite is a generative infinite text video installation. It animates the glyphs of the basic multilingual plane of the unicode standard and presents this range of the human culture of writing as a polyphonic text video installation. Characters are appearing in a very fast sequence sorted by optical similarity that was calculated by an automatic recognition process.

finite animation (that's just a recorded loop)

unicode infinite is being shown on 16 plasma screens from july 12 to september 21, 2013 at Galerie b (curated by Johannes Auer) at Stadtbibliothek Stuttgart (Germany).
