Encrypt /Print /Decrypt
Visual Cryptography was developed in the 90s, and could be a low-energy-footprint alternative to algorithmic encryptions since it requires far less computational input. Briefly, Visual Cryptography is based on the principal of an image split up into n shares so that only someone with all n shares could decrypt that image. This zine includes how-tos for converting messages (from text, numbers, barcodes) to images, relevant free software tools, and resources for further reading on how Visual Cryptography works. It was created for the AMRO festival 2020.
