The reflective wall sculpture is constructed from triangular elements of stainless mirror and digital LED counters: assembled by means of Origami, the final multifaceted form is based on an unfolded geodesic dome. The red, green and blue LEDs count in a cyclical manner from 1 to 9 or 9 to 1 and are at the centre of his varied oeuvre. For Miyajima this constant repetition is a symbol for perpetual life. Excluded from his work is the figure nought, which to the artist signifies standstill or death.
