LL Art: What Would We Do If We Didn't Have All The Pieces?

LL Art

I found this in a faraway box during my move - it is almost a decade old. The CDs were stuck together with double-sided tape, the foliage of the now almost obsolete medium porous in my hands.
I made this in my second year of university, after reading Baudrillard's "Simulation and Simulacra". This sentence, this response of mine to what I had read, circled around in my mind, the neurons of unprocessed thoughts skipping back into consciousness like a self-tipping sand-clock.

I decided to reach out and stop the tipping, which I could do by externalising the sentence.

"The Pieces" sits outside of the frame, visually and in actual object representing the words in context. "What would we do if we didn't have all"

  • the information? 

We don't ever have ALL the information, ALL the pieces. The assumption is that this is possible, so the question is, what do we do now, since we never do have all the pieces?

We create and add, analyse and find. Never ending possibilities, never reaching the all.

That's what we do, and that's what this sentence reminds us to do.
