Questions Aplenty From New Installation at San Francisco Museum

In Exhibitions on May 5, 2011 at 3:51 am

Is someone asking a question in the Yud Gallery at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco? Has the CJM just opened a new sound installation in its Yud Gallery called “Are we there yet?” Has it been designed — based on Jews’ inquisitive impulse — by regular collaborators Ken Goldberg (artist and professor of robotics at U.C. Berkeley) and Gil Gershoni (commercial designer)? Did they talk to the Forward’s Dan Friedman by telephone? Did the chief rabbi eat matzo at Seder?

Dan Friedman: Are the Jews really the only people who ask questions?

Ken Goldberg: Who else asks questions? What are you trying to say? What do you mean?!
