  • Notes: "The magic of this Laudenslager piece is testing your thinking about what you see. At first look, you see two pieces of enjoined reflective glass sitting on four triangles. The front triangle has words embossed 'Logic is Ephemeral.' The back triangle is filled with concrete, with words 'Illusion is Concrete. The illusion begins as you look straight into the glass pieces, 'Logic is Ephemeral' suddenly appears in the two outside triangles, in reality there is nothing there. Then, if you are lucky, the ultimate is catching the right light and position, still looking into the glass pieces, will appear the impossible: Floating beneath the concrete will appear the words "Logic is Ephemeral" under the words 'Illusion is Concrete.' "
    -Gary Cooprider
