wordup.jpgan electronic light sculpture consisting of a matrix of LED tubes on the outer surfaces of each of two elevator cabs of a large public library in Minneapolis. as the cabs ride up & down an inner atrium, the LED displays will reveal, letter by letter, the titles of books being checked out by library patrons. the climbing & descending book titles seem to evoke the idea that library patrons have become part of a giant reading machine: the LED signs will "scan as if they were text hanging in the air."

I might be fooled by the movie, but I hope they made the scrolling speed of the elevator screen EXACTLY opposite of the elevator speed. For now, the letters look going upwards rather than just hanging there.
