"Digital Numeric Relevator Mk VI - Circular Logic"
completed March 1994
8" X 9" high

In this piece a digit lights briefly on each column, chasing around at about one turn per second.  Each time the number lights it shows a different value at random.  The speed varies slightly with the ambient light -- there is a small light sensor in the top center.

Each of the panels is a circuit that counts from 0-9, while another
circuit hidden inside lights the displays sequentially.

The numeric displays are quite attractive when not illuminated,
looking somewhat like a Chinese ideogram.  This is why I chose to light only one digit at a time -- to show off the intrinsic beauty of the display itself.  These are an early 7 segment LED type that uses 2 LEDs per segment.

This piece is available for $900.00
