Counter is a solar-powered interactive automaton that enumerates each pedestrian that walks though its archway. It is capable of counting up to one less than a billion, after which it will clock-over and go back to zero. Counter activates the imperative to “be counted” or “make sure you count” that is part of liberal democratic cultural heritage, whilst also carrying overtones of surveillance and scientific measurement. Counter was first installed at the entrance of the Perth Underground Train Station, since then it has counted at Aarhus, in Denmark and on the beach at Cottesloe and Bondi.
