Roman Opałka was a French-born Polish painter who painted numbers. In 1965 he began painting a process of counting – from one to infinity. Starting in the top left-hand corner of the canvas and finishing in the bottom right-hand corner, the tiny numbers were painted in horizontal rows. As of July 2004, he had reached 5.5 million.

This 50m long installation in Hamburg Airport was the brainchild of Serviceplan Hamburg in an attempt to reflect (no pun intended) how the BMW M3 “transcends limits by delivering unbelievable performance from minimal resources”.
A great and unique use of location – just really clever.
