DIST∆NT L∆ND 5 (BROKEN)
Sandy Smith - Green / Blue Horizontal, 2005
“Constructed as my final submission for The Glasgow School of Art degree show, “Green / Blue Horizontal” is the largest structure I have made to date, using everything I’d collected over the previous 8 months.
Standing at 3 metres tall, the wall curved round the far corner of the room, creating a seperate space approximately 3 by 3 metres. This space was accessable through a gap in the wall, covered by an arch of monitors. Every (about 60) monitor in the wall was turned on, each displaying a single flat colour. The monitors on the bottom half of the wall showed various hues of green, and the top half showed blue, creating a rough horizon line stretching round the wall.”

Ryoji Ikeda - The Transfinite (2011)
“A huge, immersive, electronic light-and-sound installation consisting of an immense wall — 54 feet wide by 40 feet tall — which serves as a screen for streaming video projections.
On one side, horizontal black, gray and white stripes and bands divided into left and right sections scroll downward, flickering furiously to the sound of aggressively percussive, buzzing and whistling electronic music emitted by powerful speakers.
he bar-code-like patterns extend across the white floor in front of the wall, where visitors who have doffed their shoes may loll, dance or meditate. It’s like a walk-in, animated Op Art painting.
On the other side, the floor is covered by soft black fabric and the wall is flooded by finely articulated, incomprehensibly complicated numerical and graphic data.
What is it to be human in such a universe? What values other than statistical ones sustain us?”
