Abstract:

"Eric Zboya has converted Un coup de dés into a series of abstract pictures, all of which accentuate the themes of transcendental dimensionality, implicit in the work of Mallarmé. Zboya performs a series of computerized translations upon each page of the text, using an algorithm to extrude every letter into a 3D-model, whereupon he repeats this process upon the output, doing so recursively over and over again, until the text resembles a feathery dendrite of both needles and spicules, all of which emanate outward, like a starburst into the void of the page. The software transmutes the flatness of each text into a digital thistle of ink. The letters burst into a dark aura, obscuring their original contours"--Afterword
