The numbers 1 to 1000 are continuously written on tracing paper (Fig.1). On a second tracing paper the numbers 1 to 250 are counted by randomly connecting digits from the first paper with a single line for each number (Fig 2). On the third tracing paper the numbers 251-500 are visualized with lines (Fig 3), on the fourth the numbers 501-750, the fifth 751-1000 (815). Each digit from the first slides is used only once. By this approach, a network of lines evolves. The ever increasing density of lines connecting the already used digits and the overlay of the five transparent papers makes counting up to 1000 effectively impossible. The system becomes impenetrable. That's why I had to capitulate and finish at number 815.
I then printed the drawings on acrylic glass and arranged them as a large installation the visitor can walk through.
