A large ultrabright LED sign displays our current world population in realtime, updating in response to statistical sources. The vertical mirroring of this simple macroview of our world transforms the information into a decorative totem -an object of contemplation taking the place ordinarily reserved for a more conventional timepiece.
The work has been commissioned for the re-opening of Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery alongside the launch of a new space dedicated to the Frank Cohen collection and a series of other commissions installed around the museum.
