What realities do we experience daily in digital spaces ? What is a bit, in terms of physicality ? Not that much, right ? And a megabyte ? A gigabyte ?
Image Disque is an installation consisting of a hard drive containing its own photograph, a photograph that takes all the space on this disk and that is continuously read in by a computer displaying it. We are thus confronted with the reality of the hard drive and of its ‘virtual’ image which differs from what one could expect. Will bugs and unexpected behavior from the machines are going to change our understanding of what a digital file is?
