Dan Farrimond is a multimedia artist from the United Kingdom. It wasn’t until 1998, when he first travelled via aeroplane, that he discovered the country wasn’t actually made up of blocky pixels as shown on the teletext weather map. Ironically, that holiday was also booked on teletext.
In an attempt to right this wrong, he adopted a new (or should that be old?) genre – analogue teletext art. To this day, he is still searching for the perfectly cubical rock to build a blocky Britain.
Dan Farrimond’s work focuses on design within limitation, particularly in the transmission of electronic information, and the subsequent effect on meaning – to what extent is the original message distorted by these restrictions?
