Dimensions variable
Aluminum, Geiger counter, micro processor, LEDs, tripod, wooden crate

A polished aluminium sphere is mounted on a tripod. The sphere is divided by a slit, where a white light is erratically flashing. A sharp clicking sound accompanies each flash. This ‘instrument’ stands next to a wooden create, which is adorned with the greek letter γ (gamma). The crate is lined with a black foam material and straps are attached to its lid.

The light and clicking sound is connected to a geiger counter. A geiger counter is an electronic instrument used for detecting and measuring ionizing radiation.
