“I noticed a cryptic layer of the magazine pages behind the cover and used that as inspiration. The quote is supposedly by Francis Picabia. We never know what codes are lurking behind unless we move our arses to look”. Renee Carmichael

Collage of screenshots from a MacBook Pro with a malfunctioning NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics processor, Animated Gif. Based on Magazine Cover: 391, New York, N.3, 1 March 1917.

Download Gif


“The image was cut into 10 equal segments which were fed individually into a 2008 MacBook Pro 17” laptop with a defective graphics processor.  The laptop was allowed to affect each segment, during which approximately 20 screenshots of each were taken.  The screenshots were then reassembled into 10 complete images, taking care to keep all segments in proper location.

Defective GPUs produce “randomly predictable” output, but by assembling collages of many different screenshots I hoped to produce a distinctly different aesthetic than would be created by allowing the GPU to affect the whole image at once”. John Bumstead

“Dada alone does not smell: it is nothing, nothing, nothing.

It is like your hopes: nothing

like your paradise: nothing

like your idols: nothing

like your heroes: nothing

like your artists: nothing

like your religions: nothing.”


From ‘Manifeste cannibale dada’ by Francis Picabia, read at the Dada soirée at the Théâtre de la Maison de l’Oeuvre, Paris, 27 March 1920.
