Obiettivo’s light oscillation frequency indicates how many people are entering or leaving a condition of extreme poverty: a faster frequency indicates more people, a slower one means less people. If light moves towards the front of of the sculpture, it’s positive: it means that people are leaving poverty. If it’s towards the back it means that they are entering poverty. Obiettivo’s light will turn off when there will be less than 500 thousand people in a condition of extreme poverty in the world.
