Arecibo was the first binary radio message sent into space in 1974. from the Arecibo Telescope in Puerto Rico.
When the radio signal is decoded into a binary code, we get a visual message and when we divide it into sectors by color, we can see an interesting work of art.
I really liked that, so I put a part of myself into the visual part of the message.
The idea is to add the logos of the first hundred currencies arbitrarily, slightly modified in drawing, in three sectors on the message. I did this because I constantly follow the digital currency exchange on my mobile and I mine and trade.
I added the mobile phone, which is the most important part of our modern technology.
I changed the decimal number of human genomes to binary 3,117,275,501.
In 1974, science believed that there were 4.3 billion of them.
I also converted the number of inhabitants, which was then 4.3 billion, to the number of 8,001,452,891 that there are now.
Today, we send satellites into space with the most advanced optics. One of the reasons is the question of whether we are alone. Maybe we can send the new Arecibo message in some other way instead of radio waves? Maybe using a laser? I have no idea, I'm just wondering.
I used PVC plastic, a mini laser and a 3d printer. The work is presented as an object and has three dimensions.
The message consists of
1679 bytes, has 73x23 lines.
