Nestled into the corner of the library fašade are more than 23,000 blue Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). To the casual observer, a shimmering cascade of light appears to flow down the wall but it becomes quickly evident that what one sees are actually words flowing through each other at different rates. By tracking one line of text, the observer will discover that they are looking at keyword searches being carried out within the library database. The studio's role was to work with the installation Artist Michael Brown on the design and prototype of the final LED units. The scope of work was to produce a simple steamlined water tight unit that could be easily reproduced, repaired and replaced.
