Replicating blot


Replicating blot


Replicating blot is a print of a digital inkblot where the source-code to generate the image is itself written

into the inkblot. You could say that the source-code is like the DNA of the image and holds all information

needed to rebuild the image and by that itself. If anyone would type the programming-source into a computer

and run it, the computer would create an identical image. Therefore, you can say that the image, with the

help of the beholder, can copy itself. If any single character in the source-code would change, the inkblot

and the image would take another form, something that reminds you of a virus or a life-form.
