  1. I am looking to go find your art around the City, particularly the reset piece Articacts of Memory. Is there some reason none of the descriptions of your installations actually include locations?

  2. Sculpture has the correct equation, DISTANCE=VELOCITY X TIME.

    The text describing the installation has the equation wrong, TIME= DISTANCE X VELOCITY. Solving for TIME, the equation would be TIME=DISTANCE / VELOCITY.

    Or am I missing something?
