FingerCodes FC01 - FC15
Finger Codes, uses a system of drawings and sketches that develop through the process of a simple mark, the fingerprint, aligned to complex and integrated structures. These drawings include references to external sources that provide additional data to the images and threads of numerical and language content. The task is to aesthetically simplify these layers of complexity and conceptual meaning, to explore the fingerprint mark and translate this process as Finger Codes artworks.

Human fingerprints are translated into numerical symbols, coded through drawings and used as symbolic data. Patterns that merge are also to be lost, woven and undone again, in layers adding complexity in the language of code and information architecture.
