The Patterns Of Life installation was shown for more than 4 years in the permanent exhibition of the Universum Science Center in Bremen, Germany. The Universum is a major Science museum that is visited by approximately 1500 visitors per day. After four years, and approximately 2 million visitors, the four computers driving the installation finally collapsed and the installation had to be taken out of the exhibition. It has since found a new home at the University of Oldenburg. Over the course of the project images from the pattersn of life have appeared on various media, including calendars, christmas cards, and coffee cups.
