This Sensation As Binary is a cyclical system that standardises and responds to sunlight information in its immediate environment.

Constructed from two independent systems, TSAB is a cyclical network of cause and affect where each part of the system influences action in the next. A spotlight focuses on a solar panel that provides power to the main structure of one hundred meters of LED strip. The fluctuations in ambient light in the immediate environment are recorded and amplified through the structure, which in turn emits its own light, according to the environmental information received.

As the system runs it produces light. This affects the information received by the sensor, which feeds back into the system, forming a cyclical loop of cause and affect within an environment in flux.
