The Opposite of a Duck


Through an online query, the artist collected hundreds of unanswerable questions from philosophers from around the world. An undulating steel frame holds circuit boards that hang like an open venetian blind, with LED's on the edges of both sides of each circuit board. This makes the sculpture a transparent, 3-dimensional, two-sided, moving display. The scrolling lines and words are visible inside the library and from outside the library through the window. Moving lines of light slowly scroll around the sculpture. They are followed by smaller and faster lines, then followed by one of the many unanswerable questions.
