Today, computer-generated architectural plans translate spaces into 3D renderings. Sander’s work writes out the figures and sign systems employed to represent and construct this exhibition space, thus rendering its actual source code visible. Here, the inner architecture of the gallery is depicted as XML-SVG code on the walls of the exhibition space, spelling out the very figures that are based on the volume of the space. If these source-code figures were entered into a computer, the architectural body would re-emerge as a three dimensional image. While the series of figures appear to the viewer as coloured patterns, this readable though undecipherable language is a tangible reference to a spatial drawing which is, at the same time, a drawing of the space.
