About the Book
3 X 300 is a set of three books, each with three hundred pages, created in approximately three hundred minutes.
The books explore digital photography, breaking it into abstract primitive forms.
All three books contain just one image, a vista of Tokyo from above, metaphorically this complex city is the perfect subject for closer inspection.
3X300 / ZOOM
Digital photography breaks our world up into squares. ZOOM looks at pixels, by slowly zooming into the image. The resolution of the first page is 300 pixels per inch, while the resolution of the last page is just 1 pixel per inch.
3X300 / CODE
Most of the photos taken today will never be printed, they will never live outside a hard drive. CODE aims to display an image as our computer stores it, as lines and lines of text. Although the pages of the book contain only a fraction of the information contained within one photograph.
3X300 / FADE
If an image ever makes it into the real world, it will exist as droplets of ink on a page. FADE plays with this concept, recreating the magic of seeing images slowly appear before your eyes, as they do in the darkroom, or within a polaroid frame.
