Thinking Contest
Computers, printers, paper, steel
12' X 12' X 3'

Two computers were fed two different vocabularies of adjectives and nouns. In the gallery, each computer thinks up things using its vocabulary and writes sentences by saying "I am thinking of" followed by a randomly chosen adjective, followed by a randomly chosen noun. Some examples (from millions): "I am thinking of Etruscan careers.", "I am thinking of theoretical mammals.", "I am thinking of love-sick plywood.", etc., etc. The big red needle gauges their brainpower.
