v2_lab physical self-display devices are devices which communicate ever changing
operational codes based on external environmental data. these self-powering
tiny devices are scattered throughout any environment and do not transmit or
relay in any manner useful sensory data to any observer. they can only be
experienced within the (often remote) situation in which they are placed.
the self-reliant operational characteristics of these devices engender
open-ness and expansion in any situation.

the devices are solar powered and have been designed to operate for a
minimum of three years within harsh environments. over this time period the
devices modify their own instruction code, the program they are running, in
response to environmental changes. fragments of code are audibly
communicated between devices which can incorporate and make use of this new
code (now replaced with RF). each device displays on LCD a segment of its
operational code. through self display and communication these devices are
integrated into the environment. ap0201 devices installed in mojave,
california in april 2004 an important aspect of the ap0201 project is the design of a highly modular, usable solar powered, small platform for further artistic work making use of slow-time-based computations in remote and difficult environments. ap0201 was co-developed with v2_lab, rotterdam [stock-hardware, anne-co-ordination] and is currently funded for deployment by the arts council of england and kindly supported by clui
