"It’s going to happen. Full stop.”

A series of images depicting full stops in the centre of a word-processing document, photographed on an LED computer screen (the full stops increase in size in line with the Fibonaaci sequence).

An LED screen is made up of pixels. Each pixel contains phosphors of red, green and blue (RGB) which emit light when struck by electron beams. 

To produce the background of a word-processing document, the RGB phosphors are excited to their maximum intensities of 255 to create the illusion of white, or light at the same relative intensity as sunlight. To provide the appearance of the black full stops, the RGB phosphors are set to zero, meaning no electrons strike the phosphors and therefore no light is emitted.

Photographing this phenomenon results in images of black circles set against a field of colour. Discrepancies in the colour fields occur due to the available light in the room hitting the screen and the camera’s relative position to it. This colour can be read as a conversation between the camera and the computer screen. The camera exposes that while the fullstops appear as dead, heavy spaces – black holes in to which all meaning is sucked – the ‘white space' surrounding the void is far from empty, expectant with the possibility of language.
