Temporary Printing Machine is an interesting work that highlights the ephemeral quality of digital data. The installation functions as a canvas onto which digital content is “printed” out as a monochrome image – not printed with ink, but with light onto a light reactive surface – lasting for a few minutes before vanishing.
Once the information has faded away, the printing process is repeated, creating an infinite stream of disappearing data of sometimes never repeated imagery.
The work is the creation of Londond-based collective rAndom International.
