A 40x40cm conceptual sculpture depicting the transition from the analog to today’s digital era. First presented in 2018 Panhellenic Exhibition in Athens.
Dimensions suit in any place of a business office as a piece of contemporary art.
The antikythera mechanism is conciderd to be the first analog computer in the world. Nowadays the first lesson for developers and computer engineers is to build a code so that the output on the computer screen will be the phrase ‘Hello World’.
On the scupture is engraved the largest piece of the antikythera mechanism, which gives birth a printed circuit board (PCB) and a black screen showing the the output of the first developers lesson in an 8bit old fashioned font.
The colors of the mechanism and the circuit board are created from copper carbonate in a reduction enviroment using the ‘raku’ method. Black is smoke from sawdust in the reduction chamber. For the fonts a white cracle glaze has been used.
