About the Work
Much of Parsons’ artwork uses elements of codes and numbers as well as building blocks. It is possible that the punched holes at the back of the photographs are a reference to the stiff punch cards used in computers in the 1970s and 1980s to record digital information (the information was represented by the presence or absence of holes in predefined positions). Punched cards were widely used in the data processing industry for data input, output, and for storage of information.
