This image is something that came out of a little experimentation I did on the City of Bitrise image that depicts what I saw as a rather cool effect that is something like what I could imagine a scan of the surface of the data on a damaged or partially corrupted drive could look like as an abstract concept as seen by the computer. It knows something is supposed to be there, but to the system there is nothing but a void in which, for all it knows any thing could exist data-wise. Now if you drive looks like this on a surface scan (I am assuming you have some kind of experimental futuristic scanner if you can get this kind of depiction), then you might want to buy a new hard drive because yours is a swiss cheese of damaged sectors and corrupted data. Another way to possibly think of this may be simply looking beneath the surface of the data on the computer similarly to the others in this series where there is more of an emphasis on the 'space' part of cyberspace. As usual, tell me what you think, give your interpretations of the art and feel free to use it. If you are curious as to how I made this or any of my pictures, feel free to ask and I will explain as best I can. Like I said, I am more a computer enthusiast rather than an artist. I am aware that these images do not literally depict what data and computers are like, that is not the intention of this series.
