ILOVEBGT | Datasketch

In low resolution, in a frame of 11x11 pixels a heart in human language says "I LOVE BGT". On the computer side, a binary string yields a code of 81 characters with a completely opposite meaning. What are we looking at?

Available in:

Love and hate are feelings usually expressed in different moments and opposite ways. Can we hate and love at the same time? Is there a way to express these feelings simultaneously?

The heart icon of I LOVE BOGOTÁ in the hands of artist Alejandro Londoño Urdaneta becomes a work of algorithmic art.

The result: an 81-character code that translates I HATE BOGOTÁ encloses this icon in 11x11 pixels. Expressing two apparently opposite feelings simultaneously.

This collection was possible thanks to the support of Idartes and the grant Es Cultura Local.
