Unformatted text preview: HDCC105 September 12, 2011 BEING DIGITAL What is digital? In discussing being digital it is worth mentioning that digital does not have the same meaning to everyone at every time in history. For example, to many, digits = fingers Analog Clock Digitally Made- http://rainbow.arch.scriptmania.com/scripts/mouse _clock3.html ould you call this a digital clock radio? Would you call this a digital camera? Nam June Paik (1932-2006) TV Buddha (1974) Nam June Paik (1932-2006) TV Buddha Re-Incarnated and Buddha Watching TV Digital vs. ????? A typical dichotomy might be described as being that of Digital versus Analog. Some examples: DVR versus VCR MP3 versus Tape What else? Why does a tape recording of a tape recording of a tape recording of a tape recording sound horrible but a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy of an MP3 sounds just the same? Alvin Lucier I Am Sitting In A Room 1969 How do you feel today?...
