A device inside the sealed box plays one digital video over and over. The content of the video, selected by Hanna Regev, is a secret.  I've always been interested in situations where abstraction meets materiality.  Maybe it was my background growing up as one of the only Jewish kids in the steel town of Bethlehem Pennsylvania.  My mother, a reading specialist, taught me about the Jewish concept of G-d, an abstraction that cannot be visualized or verbalized, and my father, a metallurgist and engineer, taught me about the materiality of machines: rockets and go-karts.  I ended up studying Robotics, a field where engineers study the Mind-Body Problem.
