English Lit

Honoring a desire expressed by members of the English Department faculty to immortalize the Bard, the artists designed a mechanized light clock that projects a "constellation" based on Shakespeare’s portrait across a wall adjacent to a collection of his works. The image, appearing briefly and randomly once each day, comments on Shakespeare's daily applicability to human drama and discourse. His lit visage will not escape Brutus' comments in Julius Caesar, Act II, Scene 1: "The exhalations whizzing in the air - Give so much light that I may read by them."
