“Flow Chart” digitally reconstructs a pattern out of photographic captures of tens of old punch cards discovered at a shuttered Romanian electronics factory. Containing some 100 frames, the composite image of swirling arrows and geometric perforations harkens to the country’s industrial past, encoding the continuous flow of human labor and heavy machinery. The decorative-like pattern recalls the oft forgotten material aspect of data storage, turning these obsolete data units into tokens of a bygone time.
