The default message coded
into her work reads:
Utilising 21st century technology, Backen - one of Australia's leading conceptual artists - has recreated and brought back to life what is essentially a dead language from centuries past. A computer terminal located inside the Powerhouse. Its touch screen invites you to an intimate exchange with the work outside. You are invited to compose your own message and to choose a time and date for its future transmission to the world. The messages accumulate as an archive, gradually adding another layer to the building's history.
It will also be possible to access the work online.
