Coming from a generation of artists who grew up with digital technology, Charles Sandison has developed a computer-based visual language. His work takes the form of kinetic texts in which words and numbers file past in perpetual movement in the form of projections onto a given environment or on projection screens. Drawing from some of Western history’s most important publications, Sandison programs their written content as algorithms that follow a prescribed logic.
