How Random - Is Random is an installation for two digital photoframes and is made by Harco Rutgers.
A large number of eastern proverbs, split in half, are randomly recombined to form new proverbs.
This video was shot at Uncollectibles, an exhibition in Kunstenlab Deventer. The video plays at twice the actual speed.
Since there are over 300 text fragments in each photoframe, the number of possible combinations is pretty high and repetitions are rare. Even when looking for days (or months if you adjust the speed on the photoframes).
