2012, HTML file with 8-bit colors (16.7 Million). Silent. Duration variable.
TrueColors is a digital projection of an HTML file containing an algorithm based on David Hilbert’s 1891 ‘Curve Algorithm’.
This mathematical formula was used in order to create a continuous stream of 16,777,216 solid colors, each one appearing for a specific moment before being dissovled into another one that is ever so slightly different.
Those 16.7 million colors comprise a complete color palette known as 8-bit (256 different values for every one of the basic Red, Green and Blue pixels structuring a digital image) which is the common standard for almost all digital visual equipment and hardware (monitors, TV’s, cameras etc).
8-bit color space is slowly being phased out by systems of higher bit-depths such as 10/12/14-bit producing billions of colors.
The duration of the projection is equal to the total duration of the show. In that way, the work is projected only once, non-stop, resulting in a unique appearance of each and every color in this color range.
