It took me quite some time find any information about this image. I found it initially on Traditional Doom, but thank to Google Image Search I figured out that this Venus de Milo was photographed in Jean Paul Gaultier his studio. And now I’m at a dead end.
Does anyone know if this is custom installation at Gaultiers studio or does anyone know the artist? Thanks for any hints. Thanks to commenters for pointing out that it’s an installation by Studio Makkink & Bey.
(BTW, seriously Tumblr, get your act together, you’re obfuscating the internet.)
Roman Opałka was a French-born Polish painter who painted numbers. In 196 he began painting a process of counting – from one to infinity. Starting in the top left-hand corner of the canvas and finishing in the bottom right-hand corner, the tiny numbers were painted in horizontal rows. As of July 2004, he had reached 5.5 million.

Here’s an other receipt printer project by undef: undef printer. This time you can decide what it should print, well actually you will have to write some simple code to do so. I’ve made variation of my TT pattern, which I did for the Pa++ern project 2 years ago. Anyway, you can try it out till October 8th, it is part of the “Tra me e ciò che è in me” exhibition in Grono, Switzerland.
Here’s my “code”, I guess there’s a smarter way to achieve my pattern.
