Four line-projecting lasers are mounted at locations comprised of the vertices of a rectangle. Due to the nature of lasers, the light is detectable only on a surface of intersection, so there is a glowing green line on everything within the work’s reach. The work’s title refers to the liquid crystal display (LCD) screens used in modern technology, such as televisions, laptops, and phones. The screen represents a field of existence, a place where one can look to gain information from the world at large. “LCD” can also mean ‘lowest common denominator’, a basic trait that can be universally applied to a population.
