One Billion Colored Dots consists of 25 volumes and counts one billion colored dots at the rate of 40.000.000 dots per volume and 4.000 dots per page. The work is printed in as many colors as there are volumes: each volume has its own color. The accumulation of dots is oriented towards the edification of sense. Quantity constitutes the work.
