Zone incorporates a computer, a polaroid distance sensor, ans a digital speech system.   It continually measures the space in front of it, and as viewers pass within its field of view, assigns words to ten one-foot increments of distance from its sensor.   It speaks monotonously as viewers enter these zones.  Utterances range from "cautious" at ten feet to "hysterical" at one foot.
