This project consists of: the painting shaped by 9 squares (40x40cm) and 3 app's. It depicts dictators crumbled by time.

I wanted to know how many compositions I could make in order to determine the best composition.
First there are the permutation possibilities of the 9 squares. 9! This notation means:
9x8x7x6x5x4x3x2x1 = 362880 combinations thus compositions.

But each square can also rotate 4 times. For 9 squares there are
4x4x4x4x4x4x4x4x4 = 4^9 = 262144 combinations thus compositions

This adds up to 3628880 x 262144 = 95.126.814.720 composition possibilities.

If you want to watch each composition for 1 second only, it will cost you 95.126.814.720 seconds
95.126.814.720 sec : 3600 = 26.424.115,2 hrs : 24 = 1.101.004,8 days : 365,25 = 3014,386858 years.
 
There is a main app which shows each composition possibility one second and will run for over 3000 years showing unique compositions.
There also is an app that shows all permutation possibilities and an app that shows all rotation possibilities. Both app’s can run on 4 different speeds and have 4 different start positions.

All software is operational.

Maybe the concept is usable to create an eternal clock or it can be a promotion article for sustainability. Anyway, the concept can have many forms.
