In/ Form/ation transforms well-known web pages into reliefs. Spiller explores subtle but complex shortcomings created by digitisation with its matrix approach. Because every hole represents a letter from the web page, as defined by its depth, a material artefact emerges from the non-material flow of digital data. Different shadows produced by different depths create a dynamic flickering as in the world of screens. Semantically, the word “information” suggests data hidden ‘in form’. The structure of wood provides an excellent example: it is a chronography of the climatic and biological conditions in which the tree developed.Plywood is an industrial composite glued together in a rhythmic collage.
