In Art, Science and Life, What is the Question?by Nancy Gong
Etched glass panels.
10 feet by 54 feet
This piece located: University Services/Innovation Center
This piece belongs to the Public Art on Campus Collection
According to Gong, In Art, Science and Life, What is the Question? was heavily inspired by science, technology and the arts. The piece is comprised of 13 etched glass panels, each weighing in at over 400 pounds. The wall physically divides the lobby from the Innovation Center, while the transparent glass, allowing each side to see through to the other, unifies the space. The etched images relate to RIT's 8 colleges and refer to everything from the binary system to the black hole.
