Jim Campbell, I Have Never Read the Bible Again, 2001.

Pixels: 169 LEDs, Image: 34 x 25 cm, Depth: 256 levels.

This work is a visual remake of a work of mine from 1995 (the original work titled I Have Never Read the Bible was a sound sculpture). This work converts the ASCII text of the entire Bible into a visual representation of me reading the Bible one letter at a time. It takes about 35 days 24 hours a day to finish the job. The work uses 192 LEDs in a 12 x 16 pixel grid. (J.C.)
