Natural Process

Natural Process : Process Flow: An art exhibition (I couldn’t figure out where) called “Natural Process” has Google’s home page printed at a gigantic size, hung on the wall, then projected on the Web.

The NP system is constructed so that a webcam captures the painting in the museum and transmits its image onto the Internet.

Here’s how it works: [The webpage is converted into analog form (i.e. a painting)] >> [installed in the museum] >> [filtered through the medium of the exhibition space] >> [converted back into digital form] >> [and transmitted onto the Internet]

In short, it originates from the Web and returns back to it through what is probably the world’s most-roundabout process ever!!

The pictures are great.
