This computer-driven sentence-generator, using rules and lexicon written by the artist, invents and writes a new line of text, and displays it on the sign when triggered by a motion detector. The sentences mix the language of engineering with the language of beauty advertising.

The sculpture is made of 1200 resin lipsticks powered by 1200 stepper motors, contolled by 60 circuit boards.

At the Harris Engineering Center, UCF, Orlando.
