Circulation Data and Art

The Seattle Public Library has had several pieces of art installed within its new building. One, "Making Visible the Invisible," displays streams of titles checked out from the library on six plasma screens. Take a look. According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, there is no patron data displayed and there is an hour delay between the actual circulation interaction and the computer display. What an interesting piece of art! I would love to see it! [from librarian.net]
