ceiling_clock.jpg
a minimalist installation that acts as a light sign, an information carrier, & a light source at the same time. 2 digits of 7-segment display, formed using industrial fluorescent tubes, are suspended from the ceiling.

as a "display", the installation is used to show the current time in minutes. at the same time, as a light installation, it is the only light source inside the exhibition space & therefore it serves as the necessary pragmatic lighting source. as the displayed information is changing every minute, the over all light intensity is kept on a constant level during all times, thus the appearance of the exhibition space is changed subtly but constantly.

This of course is pure madness. Kafka could write an anthology based on this room.
