An art print where typography and software meet: a fully valid computer program print that draws a heart from random letters or binary code.
The perfect geeky anniversary gift for those who like the technical or just love a subtlely hidden message. For everyone else, it's a modern, stylish talking point for the home.
Featuring both the code and its output*, this piece features a simple program that draws a heart from random letters or binary digits. The code is short and easy to read for the curious observer, no degree in computer science required.
Every piece of helloworld art comes with a factsheet that gives instructions on how to run the program on Mac and PC and some information on how to learn more.
* If you run the program yourself you'll find that your output is almost certainly different with respect to the letters or binary digits that compose the heart - they're randomly generated every time it runs.
Choose to have your heart drawn from random alphabetical letters or simply ones and zeros.
The print can be unframed, or framed in one of three wooden finishes (black, white or natural oak) behind a handcut mount and glass.
The framed prints are not available for shipping to non-UK mainland addresses, due to the practicalities of posting glass.
Made to order and printed on heavy, softly textured art paper. Framing options all include a white mount and solid frame in black, white or oak and glazed with 0.2cm glass.
Print size 42cm x 14.8cm. With frame: 52cm x 24.8cm.
