According to the Big Bang Theory, at the very beginning of this universe, our universe was hot and dense state. Scientists said, Right after the Big Bang - it took 0.000001 second, subatomic particles were ready to be born. And 380,000 years later, the first atom of our universe had been made.

According to the physicists, the planck area is the smallest unit of this space and it is the decisive proof of that our universe is basically digital. I'm not a follower of simulation universe theory, but on the other hand, I always imagine that maybe one day, another universe can be born on our digital network and terminals. 

One of the famous Sci-fi author Isaac Asimov's short story, titled <The Last Question> is the motif of these works. I've tried to make a sort of simulated computer graphics based on real specifications such as CGA, Hercules graphic cards.

One day, the digital simulated universe will be born, the origin of the universe is the first digital computer. And the origin of digital visible world is the first computer graphic card.

A Brief

History of Digital Image

What are we looking at?

 

There are images which are visibly marked by the electronic means of their trasmission, such as the break down of a 'photographic' image into horizontal line - a video effect.

 

For the most part,
the significant difference between the purely photographic and the digitally registered photograph lie in the way it was 'taken' or transmitted, not simply the way it looks.


Photographs and photographic images

In the growing critical literature about photography and new image technologies, two related sets of questions have been asked.

EPISTEMOLOGICAL
The epistemological questions ask what kind of knowledge a digital rather than photographic image proveds us with and how it does it.

ONTOLOGICAL
The ontological questions are asked about what kid of thing an image is(or is now coming to be) as it becomes enceded as electronic data, in what form or material and where does it now exist?

Color Graphics Adaptor

The Color Graphics Adapter (CGA), originally also called the Color/Graphics Adapter or IBM Color/Graphics Monitor Adapter, introduced in 1981, was IBM's first graphics card and first color display card for the IBM PC. For this reason, it also became that computer's first color computer display standard.

Hercules Graphics

The Hercules Graphics Card (HGC) is a computer graphics controller made by Hercules Computer Technology, Inc. that combines IBM's text-only MDA display standard with a bitmapped graphics mode.

 

This allows the HGC to offer both high-quality text and graphics from a single card.

The HGC was very popular, and became a widely supported de facto display standard on IBM PC compatibles connected to a monochrome monitor. The HGC standard was used long after more technically capable systems had entered the market, especially on dual-monitor setups.
