Artist Phillip Stearns' new exhibit ADC/DAC combines analog and digital artifacts in a novel way: featuring tapestries woven with algorithm processes, neon lights on scanned images and more.

"From previous projects, I've become invested in this idea that technology is simply people—it's external and alien to what we conventionally view as human, but it is a distinctly human product and we invest so much of ourselves into its production and use,” Stearns tells The Creators Project. “We literally pour ourselves into these devices. Our traces are left behind in the patterns of data littering everything from flash cards, thumb drives, RAM, and hard drives.”
