At three stories of the facade, horizontal, translucent plastic sheets were installed. They carry four lines of linear light information, that can be decrypted using the morse alphabet, revealing a text dealing with the difficulty of defining art. The light signals can only be read at night and pose as mysterious ciphers in the midst of illuminated urban advertising.
