Acrylic box, 100,000 6mm plastic yellow balls, custom electronics, custom software, Internet connection.

Using custom software, news headlines from 4,500 different English news sources around the world are scanned every minutes looking for people being reported “killed.” An algorithm parses the data and the device drops one tiny yellow ball for each person killed. Approximately 20,000 balls are dropped each month and accumulate on the gallery floor during the course of the exhibition. (2008 Installation at Peacock Visual Arts in Aberdeen, Scotland shown).
