émile (2015) A Hommage in 5-bit

émile is a writing machine using the Baudot code – a binary 5-bit code, predecessor of ASCII and EBCDID – intended for telecommunication and electronic devices, representing the entire alphabet.

By translating the bauds (/ˈbɔːd/, unit symbol Bd) into moving objects that are being sent over physical tracks, a simple computational process of 5-bit binary information transmission is illustrated.
