In Less Than Three, a baroque network of light tubes suggests the convolutions of communication. As a participant speaks into a nearby intercom, their voice is translated into corresponding flashes of light and this light pattern is transmitted visually along one of the several possible pathways through the network. When it reaches the other side, the viewer’s phrase is once again released as sound.
