“GO” is a no-tech tactile display system that allows visitors to compose large scale images and text by manually flipping double sided discs. Each pixel features a binary composition of white marble and naturally weather-proof charred lumber. Each marble face features an engraved question, encouraging visitors to further explore the contents of the pavilion and contemplate queries that are either cosmically profound, trivial, or just plain silly. It would also be possible to curate the content to encourage groups of people to make a game out of the experience.
We’re confident that “Go” will be a fun addition to the Google campus and believe the project eloquently fuses together a strong body of concepts, allusions, and contextual specificity, while simultaneously providing a physical platform for creative expression that resists static meaning, and instead is continuously reinterpreted and redefined. In short, “Go” is an art machine, powered by the public.
