wall_numbers.jpg
a permanent physical data art installation in an underground passageway, consisting of 16 half-mirroring wall elements showing real-time sociological statistics, such as the number of malnourished children, Viennese in love in today, war casualties since January 1, HIV infected people in the world, or the amount of consumed schnitzels in Vienna.

passers-by see themselves mirrored in the various panels in the subterranean passageway below the Karlsplatz in Vienna. while reading the up-to-date number on the digital counting device, they are, as readers, being linked to the number in a performative sense.

That's much more useful than a clock, calendar, weather, news, corridor or traffic maps, or bus/train status.
