LCD is a set of 4 line generating lasers, each set as the corner of a rectangle. The rectangle is about 48x27 feet, holding the 16:9 ratio of most contemporary screens. Any collection of people who pass thru the installation will all have a green stripe around their lower leg/ ankle.
Computers, phones, and even television screens are rectangles of light that connect users to virtual public spaces such as social media websites; LCD is a virtual rectangle that that connects people, via light, in a real public space.
