200.000.000 Instructions x Second


Computers are so complex that information processing has become an incomprehensible concept for most. This leads to the belief that technology is unknowable, maybe even magical. To counter this, programmer and designer Marie Dvorzak made an object that reconnects the computation process to palpable physicality.
The amount of instructions required to run a program that draws a line on a computer has been monitored and translated into a corresponding number of moving styrofoam balls that can be observed and heard. Through this rematerialization 200 000 000 instructions x second aims to question the belief that technology operates outside of our comprehension and control.
