Abacus: Variations on a theme

Amsterdam-based artist Bilal Chahal presents his work Abacus: variations on a theme at Amsterdam’s public library at Oosterdok. As the name suggests, the installation is based on arithmetic systems and the way different systems play different roles in different cultures. Each ball has a different value and plays its own role, which can change as positions change. It reflects us as humans, as we go about our daily lives playing different roles.
