Key 17 (2005)

The Art Of Illusion City Space, Birmingham; (18 – 21 May 2005)

The hidden language of html code, and the binary code that is behind it, subliminally affects us, convincing us that we can see people we want to talk to; things we want to buy; information we want to learn.

The language and codes that frame our world can manipulate and persuade us. However, by revealing and changing them, we can change our reality for the better.


Key 17, also known as Key 23, is a drug in ‘The Invisibles’ comic by Grant Morrison. When under the influence of Key 17, a person experiences words as the thing that they represent, seeing as real whatever they read.
