‘365’ is an installation constituted by monumental custom-tailored alphanumeric 16 segment displays, displaying words and geometric configurations. The project title refers to the number of days in a year. Every day the system randomly generates a different word, following the unpredictable and combinatorial logic of the system. This agnostic approach encourages interpretation and associations of the displayed word. This auto-poetic machine questions through seemingly meaningless words our habits; ‘métro, boulot, dodo’, and renews the reading of our daily post-industrial landscape.
The artwork has been commissioned by Asphalte for the rooftops of Quai 10 and La Vigie in Charleroi, Belgium.
