The overhead projector evokes memories of the classroom. Countless hours of our formative years are spent watching teachers systematically guide us through mathematical equations on overhead projectors. By removing the bottom panel of the projector and placing it on top of outdoor recessed lighting, the nature of the overhead projector is subverted.

The piece is able to exist in unique spaces, thereby defamiliarizing the projector through recontextualization. The message, “Explore,” references the piece’s ability to wander and suggests that learning is sometimes best found outside the classroom and through explorative, curious investigations.
