Description

A copy machine serves as the pedestal for several surveys inscribed onto unfired clay slabs. At one end the viewer finds the clay slabs, the originals, and at the other end thousands of paper copies of the surveys. At either end the viewer encounters the empty spaces in the survey’s questions. The participating viewer may complete the surveys with a writing pen. The viewers’ opinions averaged with that of others, reveals general opinion.
