Culling HTML code from websites, the Frankfurt-based artist created linear collages by copying and pasting the text in InDesign. By layering and turning the text, the arrangement appears nonsensical at first glance, but there is a clear pattern defined on each canvas. Hung against a wallpaper backdrop of even more code, the canvases are accented by colorful circles. The color not only helps to balance out the web of text, but with their geometric pie-like structure they also seem like the spinning beach ball Mac users encounter when their computer is processing -Karen Day
