Andreas Müller-Pohle: Digital Scores and Entropia

Andreas Muller-Pohle, Digital scores V (after Nicephore Niepce), 2001

About the Exhibition

Andreas Müller Pohle’s Digital Scores are digital interpretations of the earliest know photography, Nicéphore Niépce’s View from his Study, taken in 1826. Müller-Pohle has digitized Niépce’s photograph, translated it into alphanumeric signs, and output it as ink-jet prints. In contrast the museum also showed his video entitled Entropia depicting an industrial shredder destroying photographs, lithographic films, and framed pictures.
