bin2wav [audio-visual, monoaural, 16:9 screen] is a machine that
autonomously computes data and renders the result as sound. its
internal binary state is represented in 10 rows of barcorde constantly
being updated. by clicking on the screen, the user can interrupt the
process and explore different computational conditions of the program.
the work tries to bring light to the mechanism and dynamics hidden in
our daily experience of using computers, through rendering flashing
binary patterns and audible pulses.
