Paper Collages of Screen Resolutions and Aspect Ratios



Artist Aram Bartholl created these paper collages representing the dimensions that we have historically experienced digital visual information through called “Graphic Arrays.”

“Graphic Arrays” is about screen resolutions and aspect ratios and how these evolved over the laste decades. The left board is dedicated to more recent mobile vertical resolution ending at iPad retina. The right board represents the long history of desktop screen pixel sizes starting with the classic VGA (640×480) IBM standard from 1987 till todays common 2560×1600 desktop monsters.

I love how representing digital information as physical objects, like pieces of paper, can change our whole perception of how we understand the digital world in comparison to the physical world.
