Electronic Manifesto: first code of law plus discussion
Electronic Manifesto was conceived in a dream - in the dream a "text" was created using an electrical network. Upon waking, the first four lines of this wordless manifesto were remembered and are called "the first code of law"; in English they are an electrified mantra of equity. The text that follows the first code are lines written while awake and these lines discuss, explain and expand upon what was remembered. This textile and electronic reproduction of the document in the dream works - it is passing energy through the drawn lines and components, ready to be activated if a button were pressed.
The manifesto is framed in a black box, with a six inch depth and without glass. The frame is designed this way to provide shade for the lights and also to invite people to press the buttons, but also to suggest a barrier because the manifesto is delicate.
