Digital Numeric Relevator artwork series

"Digital Numeric Relevator Mk XXX - LCD"
completed February 5, 2014
9" wide X 5.5" high X 4" deep

This piece uses a back lit 2 line by 40 character LCD as seen in cash registers.  I have deliberately corrupted every aspect of the device.  Placing random numbers in random locations, and also fading the back light up and down at random rates and flickering it randomly.  I intent the effect to be disconcerting since the primary purpose of this series is to satirize our implicit trust in any electronic device that displays numbers.

When power is first applied this piece "self titles" as the back light
fades up slowly, then numbers begin to appear.

eventually filling the screen and overlaying each other
