Another Red Letter Day

Kunst en Bedrijf Scholengemeenschap Sprengeloo Apeldoorn 2000

In eight different places on top of the school buildings’ facades geometric forms have been installed. Each form contains a PCD (printed circuit board) with LEDs. Three-letter words light up and fade out in a rhythmic sequence- short catchphrases, reacting to one another like instruments in an orchestra or exclamations in a theatre play. They rise like speech balloons above the buildings, as if from a thinking place. Every now and then a sentence runs over the eight objects, to keep you focussed.

Dim. Eight objects of 85 x 85 x 85 cm each
Green/transparent Perspex, PCDs LEDs and computer
