OO AY? 

Artist: Joseph Hoh

Date: February 3 to 24, 1994

This work was described as an "epistemological inquiry about a 'place' perceived physically and received through an intermediate source." 

"I was rather curious about how one reads maps and gathers other types of information from guide books in an attempt to function in a foreign place. What happened before the advent of the traveller's phrase book? How did the traveller know where to go? How about the information that we know today: how much is from a concrete experience and how much is from an intermediate source? Is the information reliable?" -Joseph Hoh, 1994
