The Ferguson Code 

Wikigod from the Google Searching for God installation, typewriter embossed paper, wood, and fluorescent lights, 2009, 5' x 30' x 1'

"Wikigod is the physical transcription of the hypertext source for Wikipedia's definition of God. A hand-embossed scroll, using a typewriter containing no ink, is presented atop a long, narrow table. The scroll is currently 30 feet in length but will be nearly 60 feet long upon completion. The table is modular and can be adjusted to fit the space in which the piece is presented. Every time the word "God" appears in the coding, the text is illuminated from below."
