What is the mass of the digital copy of La Valeur Du Vide?

(email|facebook|twitter)

Good question. Given that 1KB of data is made up of 160 million electrons, and that one electron weighs about 2×10-31 pounds, and that Esther Burns’ — quite mental — debut La Valeur Du Vide claims some 79,000KB of disk space, Microsoft Excel tells us the result is 2.5×10-18 pounds. At about this point in any scientifically-minded article is where you’d find mass comparisons between the quantifiable (read: meaningless figures like “2.5×10-18 pounds”) and the qualifiable (read: “some bacon”). But really, we have no way how to express such a figure in everyday objects. We didn’t even realize that the digital world had a mass at all until reading this article some ten minutes ago.

A much easier question (and we’re talking a Grant’s Tomb Level of Easy, here) would be something like, “How much will the 180-gram vinyl LP weigh?”

Let’s agree that what La Valeur Du Vide lacks in mass, it makes up in gravity. Fluid Radio has posted my review here. Executive summary? Sure: La Valeur Du Vide is that girl-next-door type who buries herself in tattoos and body piercings. Some of the pretty still shows through, but mostly now, she’s just sexy. And a little freaky. (Maybe that only comes to mind because the name Esther Burns sounds like a Suicide Girl alias.)
