quine was shown at our solo show at die Botschaft, and is named for logician/mathematician Willard Van Orman Quine. a quine is a computer program that takes no input and produces a copy of its own source code as its only output. our quine was made with the shadows of leaves and branches, and light (sunlight and streetlight) that play across the wall behind it. the change in light on quine's surface is intended to evoke an active slippage where the edges of the work expand and contract with the changing light of its environment. the piece is solar powered and composed of motors, circuitry, wire, tape, vellum, leaves, and LEDs.
