Floating Time V2-12 Marine Blue is an interactive environment by Tatsuo Miyajima. In this video installation, the Japanese artist uses computer-controlled electronic numbers to explore the concept of time. The projected numbers count from one to nine at different rates and in different colors, scattering randomly across a platform, the floor and even the bodies of visitors. Miyajima does not use zero because he says it represents an end, and time is never-ending. He is intrigued by the notion that time—like art—is a human invention. “Time cannot exist without human intelligence, and art cannot exist without an audience. Art and time come from people.”
