Four Letter Words

Four Letter Words is an arrangement of fluorescent light fixtures as an alphabet controlled by algorithms. Consisting of four units, each one is capable of displaying all 26 letters of the alphabet.

The piece displays an algorithmically generated word sequence, derived from a word association database developed by the University of South Florida between 1976 and 1998. The algorithms take into account word meaning, rhyme, letter sequencing, and association.

In other words… WOW.
