” This work explores the politicization of fluorescent text art through rudimentary construction from found materials, departing from the more common specially produced approaches. The sign switches on and off, controlled by a randomized timing system. A contact microphone picks up the sound of the mechanical relay and power surge and the sound system amplifies this sound.” Ian Burns.
