The optical fibre is a simple purpose material that transmits light to other points without interfering. Transparent, non-polluting, the most immediate and fastest material of information delivery, today it is the period of the information network, including the Internet.

By utilising the conduit nature of optical fibres, an analogue screen coordinating thousands of single fibre receptors. These points of light translate movement, colour, and lumen intensity to create a pixelated, displaced image of the data originally received.

The effect provides not only a glowing monolith reflecting the surrounding environment, but actively engages the phenomenology behind how data is transferred and received.
