"Digital Numeric Relevator
Mk XVI - Blue Moves"
completed July 1996
16" X 13" X 8"
This piece uses a 2 line by 20 character VFD (vacuum fluorescent display) like those seen above cash registers. I programmed this display using a Basic Stamp microcontroller using randomizing code to create groupings of numbers that slowly fill the screen then disappear all at once.
This is a
close up of the normal display.
When the red "?" button
on the base is pressed, the display shows
the title. This makes this work the first self titling artwork!
This piece is available for $1450.00 $600

This piece uses a relatively recent display that was manufactured in April 1995. It is constructed of glass under vacuum. The pixels are electro luminescent and are activated by a high voltage that is produced by circuits in the back.
Here is a close-up of the glass that shows the pixels of phosphor that light to form characters:
