Muriel

It seems the future is destined to represent all our lives in simple ones and zeros.

For this week’s Photographic Challenge: Future, I have chosen to overlay binary digits on a portrait of a sculpture that I saw recently.

Thirteen (Muriel) – William Goscombe John

Muriel was born in 1892 and was the only child of the Welsh sculptor, Sir William Goscombe John. He produced this marble sculpture of his daughter in 1906 when she was thirteen years old. In 1947, he donated it to the National Museum of Wales, Cardiff, where it can be seen today in the upper gallery.

The following binary digits, which have been used to create this image, represent her name, Muriel, in the digital domain.
