Provavelmente a pior maneira de se transmitir uma imagem é enviar os pixels por conexões paralelas através de fios. Isso é exatamente o que Gebhard Sengmüller’s Parallel Image faz. Para ser justo, esta é uma obra de arte que aborda o conceito de onde estaríamos se a transmissão de dados seriais nunca tivessem sido concretizadas. Todo o esquema (PDF) que acompanha a exposição dá os detalhes suculentos.

The device consists of a photo sensor unit and a display unit. Both are one-square-meter stripboard panels made of epoxy. The sensor unit consists of a 50×50 grid of photo-conductors that have their counterparts in the 50×50 grid of light bulbs on the display unit. Things start to get pretty crazy when you throw in the 7500 meters of magnet wire that connect the 2500 pixel sensor unit to the display unit.

On one side is a camera made of 2500 photo senser which are mounted on a 1 by 1 meter board. On the other side there is the monitor with 2500 light bulbs to display to image. In between each sensor and light bulb there is a 3 meter long copper wire.
