red and green LED numbers

Description
In collaboration with the 1991 Carnegie International.

The gallery is painted black and darkened. Two halves of the gallery are divided by a wall and encircled by 160 feet of diodes, green on one side of the wall and red on the other. The diodes, picked up by the camera as colored lines, are continually changing number strings.

The sequences of numbers could keep going into infinity. They are a kind of international language, almost organic in their continuity.
