Full text not available from this repository.


Unity II is a series of 8 works exploring the relationship between text and binary code. While many contemporary art works concerned with the impact of the digital incorporate strategies associated with electronic media and are often computer based, Unity II has been created by successfully combining methods associated with hand-making, such as inlaying and marquetry, with commercial production. Eight wooden panels are embedded with stainless steel numbers and letters that reference the father of binary code, Gottfried Leibniz (1646-1716) and statements by the French author Margeurite Duras' (1914-1996). The series juxtaposes organic and inorganic materials, numbers and letters, and maths and literature to question the links between language, codes, nature and culture, and invite reflection on the gradual embedding of the digital into the organic world.
