Perception

This work consists of out-of-control fluorescent lights. Even as the computer sends the 0 and 1 signal alternately in regular order to the fluorescent lights, the lights blink in completely irregular timing and create randomness in rhythm. In fact, there are obvious miscommunications between commander and receiver, and this bug creates an unperceived and complicated state of electric flow between them. This state is a sort of “ambiguousness” that cannot be classified as either 0 or 1. The work suggests that all things also hold an unstable state of discontinuous continuity. The fluorescent lights randomly installed in the space continue to blink in disorder until the end of their lives.
