an "animated public art" installation that is located on the top floors of Adobe’s building in San Jose, continuously representing an encoded message in aesthetic way. it consists of 4 orange illuminated discs that rotate every 7.2 seconds, along with a soundtrack available in the immediate proximity on AM 1680 radio.

after much effort, the message was finally decoded a few weeks ago.
