I Am Sitting In A Room, Redux (2015)
American composer Alvin Lucier created I Am Sitting In A Room, an audio experiment demonstrating the iterative degradation re-recording audio. "I am sitting in a room different from the one you are in now. I am recording the sound of my speaking voice and I am going to play it back into the room again and again [ ] so that any semblance of my speech [ ] is destroyed. - Alvin Lucier, 1969 As a homage to Lucier, and in reference to modern digital image compression, I too recorded myself photographically "sitting in a room". I compressed it 10,000 times to create this iterative entropy. The image's hexadecimal code is presented in its entirety, showing the compression of bytes with every iteration.
