What is up with these images!!??

.

I have been working on a form of artistic encoded information transfer.
Each of these images contains a word, that has been converted from ASCII to binary and then used as the foundation template for the resulting image.
I use colors and the form to try to communicate the word and a feeling of it.

Here is how I do it.

"Ziv Art" :^)

In a computer simple text is in a format called ASCII, and in ASCII each letter is made from 8 bits (1 or 0), or one byte. For example the ASCII letter "L" is actually made from 8 1's and 0's in the following order: 01001100.

I took the word "Love" and converted it into binary code.

So each row of 1's and 0's is a single letter.
Like this:
L = 01001100
o = 01101111
v = 01110110
e = 01100101

Then, I used this pattern of 1 and 0 as the basic form of the painting.


In this image, there are four lines of numbers, one for each letter of the word, and eight numbers across. Then I paint all the 1's one color and all the 0's another color.
In this case red and blue.

Now that you know this, you can look at any of the images, and convert the pattern into binary, and then the binary into ASCII letters and finally put it together into the word it represents.

This shows that there can be hidden meaning in patterns that can be right in plain sight.
We may never see them and understand the meaning of it unless we know how to look at it in the right way.

Love is in plain sight, if you know how to see it.

About the Rune "Algiz"...

I have been asked about the Rune and what it means, and after a bit of online research I found out quite a few interesting things. Before this search, I knew it meant "safehaven" or "protection". There are some interesting things to interpret from it's meaning and my use of it. Seems the Dark Lord was a guardian/protector... and one of my favorite finds during this search for the meaning was the following bit of inspiration that is from the www.tarahill.com site. You will also see this below, but I wanted to put it here too for emphasis. "In terms of the journey, we have passed through death and rebirth, and must now face the Guardian before returning to our world. It is he who charges us to use our new-found power wisely. The person can no longer be simply concerned with their own personal development, but must now consider the effect that their actions may have on others. This is a crucial turning point, and the person will either choose to adopt a sys

Open letter to god Janus...

Dear god Janus, It is comforting to know that the feeling symbolized in the god Janus is not new to humanity. Facing in different directions at the same time. past / future, young / old, winter / spring, transition... I am feeling like you lately, facing where I have been while looking to the future. The question I would like to ask is... Are you always like that, constantly split, or do you ever get to look in one direction and devote yourself to it? It seems to me that you cannot devote yourself to one direction, unless you were to cut off one of your faces. This would of course change who you are, and leave you disfigured and unrecognizable as your former self. But is that a bad thing? Would the disfigurement make you more beautiful in other ways? Hey Janus, if you are out there, any advice would be welcome. -Ziv http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Janus_%28mythology%29 http://www.livius.org/ja-jn/janus/janus.html http://encyclopedia.laborlawtalk.com/Janus_(mythology)
