Michael Rees's Social Object: Sculpture and Software exhibition at CAM

Michael Rees has created a software that allows a visual language to emerge from text and the results are incredible. There are several languages available, involving different images for different words and letters, and anyone can make up their own language once they know what they want to show/say. Moving to the next level is creating an actual object from the 3D image on the computer screen, which the software program also allows you to do.
“The only works of art America has given are her plumbing and her bridges.” - Marcel Duchamp. Rees used this as a jumping off point for the work you see with the sewer pipes!
