Mind Over Matter
1993
Computer, printer, paper, rock, rope, pulleys, basket
12' X 10' X 3'

A computer was fed three sentences: I think therefore I am (Descartes), I am what I am (Popeye), and I think I can (The Little Engine That Could). In the gallery, it randomly generates all possible sentences (hundreds) from the parts, for example:" I think I can think.", "I am what I think I am, I think.", "I can think what I can.", etc. Text slowly falls into basket, lifting rock.
