He writes: "phillip adams headshot is made up from the machine code for a JPG image of Phillip Adams, Australian broadcaster, author and cultural icon, that I opened as a text file by mistake. I thought there was a good chance that his name would appear at least once in the code. As it turns out, I found eleven instances (there may be more…) which I’ve simply highlighted as the letters occur in the code. The final image uses the 1st page of the text as a skin over a 3D rendering of the numerical values of the same page."
