«Empire 24/7» - Instant images for instant consumption: In this hommage to Andy Warhol, which originally appeared as a projected environment in the 1999 exhibit «net_condition» in Karlsruhe, Germany, a video camera pointed out of The Thing's New York office window captures a continuous image of Leona Helmsley's prized possession, i.e. the Empire State Building.
24/7 refers to the availability of access usually to a shop, open 24 hours on 7 days a week.
