Description

Inspired by Apple's classic desktop, Every Icon tries to show all possible icons.

The folder, the trash can, the hard drive, the modem and all the other icons were originally designed on a black and white grid that was 32 pixels square. Every Icon starts with this blank grid and systematically works to fill it up, showing all the variations as it goes.

It only takes a few months to display all the icons on the first line but it takes millions of years longer to complete the second line. There is no word for the amount of time it would take to fill the entire grid. Even in this limited visual space, there are more images than the human mind can experience in many lifetimes.

It is fun to watch Every Icon flip rapidly through hundreds and thousands of variations while seemingly going nowhere. After a while you will find yourself more sensitive to the rhythm of change and may even start to anticipate major rollovers. By watching the icons change over a longer period of time, you gain a real feeling for how vast the possibilities are. Every Icon can remind us of our impermanence and our place in the scale of things.

Every Icon is a piece of conceptual art realized in software. A version was shown at the Whitney Museum of American Art's Biennial Exhibition in 2000. A web version has been running online for over 10 years.

John F. Simon, Jr.'s software art is in the permanent collections of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art and many others.

He has programmed Apple computers since 1985.
