999999 actions (2019-2049) - numeroteur on paper


999999 actions is an ongoing series of works which deals with how to understand metadata within an analogue context. 

Each time the numeroteur (a numeric band stamp) is pressed down a number is left on the paper - so the action of pressing down the stamp itself is registred in numbers - much like all our actions within the digital world is traceable.

The numeroteur used for creating these pieces are made with 6 digits, which means that the highest number that is available is 999999 - therefore this stamp can register 999999 actions.


The best guess is that the numeroteur reaches it´s maximum number within 30 years from 2019 wrapping up the series in 2049.


Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard will then have reached the age of 70 and the works of the series will sum up Løkkegaards actions within that period.
