Counter Void by Tatsuo Miyajima

This is a installation in a form of wall outside a TV station in Tokyo, and also has a theme linked to night, and day.

"The wall is made with neon light as background of digital counters and it changes in day and night. In daytime, background's neon light is turned off and digital counters of white neon light are displayed. It turns over the scenery in nighttime. It displays black digital counters on background of white bright light" (Miyajima, 2003).
Miyajima (2003) claims that Counter Void shows a contrast of day and night; and life and death. The image below is another installation on a wall titled Mega Death (Kim, 2005).
