Digit is a large sized lightinstallation consisting of a large sized numerical display (1,60m * 3,20m) installed outside the gallery and a small sized neon display, built into a stand inside the gallery. Both displays simul- taneously show numbers from 0 - 9. Multi-digit numbers are shown descending in value and are separated by a minus symbol. During the Installation, the digits show increasing values. They always display the same number as the value in watts that they require to be powered.
Both displays are connected with a computer inside the stand. An algorithm calculates the electricity con- sumption which is then shown on each display. Then, the following value is the displayed and the process continues to repeat itself.
