The Tapestry of the Search for Terrestrial Intelligence
I took some degraded low quality audio from a youtube video of a copy of the Voyager Golden Record, and turned it into a 44 yard long tapestry, now on view at Science Gallery Dublin. I'd been obsessed for a couple of years with the ghostly imagery I'd recovered from the crappy audio - you can almost see the message from Earth hiding in the static just beyond reach - and I'm really happy with how it turned out. Lots of pictures and info at the blog post!

Wow2 -that's an amazing tapestory moonmilk, also a very rapid-transit to a whole lotta rabbit holes - I've just extracted myself from Children of Men from wandering down greg.org's page.

It occurred to me today that that this could be the Turing Tapestry...
This is art that makes the brain fizz.
