R+G+B is a cyclical display of the RGB color system as a formula. The codification of color within a trichromatic system into three 8-bit numbers (creating a 24bit number) is a structure applied to the digital world. Systems have been employed in color classification systems since Goethe and Newton attempted to map and explain color relationships. In digital contexts, colors are represented and quantified with specific numeric values for the first time rather than descriptive names. In R+G+B, three numbers are on screen and count upwards from 0-255 at different speeds. When they reach 255, they reset to zero and start over. The color of each number is equal to its value, so as the numbers increase in value they also increase in color value. The color surrounding the numbers and filling the rest of the screen is equal to the red green and blue values added together.
