Minimal art piece recreating color data systems. Besides spatial data (3D Display Cube), another way our eye picks up information is color data. Line recreates color data systems through full-spectrum control of tri- color LEDs along its five foot array. Used as a clock, RGB is attributed to hours, minutes and seconds, creating timed color patterns and overlaps throughout the day, thus letting the user think about the changing perception of color throughout the day.
