Ticker Cross


The Gospel according to John (chapter 19, verse 20) tells that the inscription Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek. Because of shortage of space this was abridged to INRI. Now, by using an LCD display and a ticker, the whole text can be shown. Additionally the actual stock exchange prices of the shares, the Vatican owns, are shown in another ticker below the INRI inscription. The cross is connected to the internet via a LAN cabel.

Developed in the Digital Media Class at the University of the Arts Berlin.
