Binary Love Art

I got married last year on the 9th of December. We decided to take the unconventional route of sending a digital invitation to our guests, instead of mailing the traditional paper card.

Personally I hate printing things. The reason is that producing, transporting, printing, and even recycling paper, creates a considerable amount of waste, and consumes a lot of energy and scarce resources. This is something people never consider when they mindlessly print pages with every attachment they get in their in-box.

I also thought that it would make a subtle statement, that we are a dynamic couple that doesn’t hesitate to embrace new, better, ways of doing things, by questioning and breaking down ingrained habits.

The image was designed in Gimp, on Apple Mac.

    Cool. I know I would have to call half my family to make sure they check their email within the next 6 months or so, if they even go on the internet…

    Yes, we had the same problem with some of our family, who don’t use the Internet. But I thought maybe this would encourage them to modernize their communication and start using the Internet and e-mail on a regular basis. One family member didn’t use a computer at all, so we sent the card to a close friend who did. The friend showed the digital card, and helped him to get a hard copy.
