About Time

The installation consists of a large (7 metre) LED type digit on the floor of the gallery. The seven segments of the digit are acoustic rather than visual indicators, and produce a variety of time related sounds which are switched to coincide with the counting of this giant number. The familiar seven segment digit is thus experienced as an auditory phenomenon instead of a visual one. A large red digit on the gallery wall gives a visual read out of the current acoustic configuration, there are ten different combinations of the seven different sounds. The mp3 recording is an excerpt covering the change over from number 7 (three different sounds) to number 8 (all seven sounds).
