Within a framework of hinged panels, Number Box constructs a series of lines made of polygons arranged on six triple-pane transparent screens. The polygons were derived from a grid of numbers that changed order on every line. The scale of each set of four polygons, 4 sets per line, was determined by applying a simple formula to each set of numbers.
