A 20 Year Old Code

I just saw a news item about Jim Sanborn. 20 years ago the CIA asked artists to submit proposals for artwork to be installed in the New Headquarters Building. His sculpture has a secret code text cut in four copper panels. To this day the whole thing has not been decoded. NPR reported that Mr. Sanborn is submitting a clue to help those hoping to crack the code.

One of my first assignments was to photograph Mr. Sanborn with one of his pieces at The Phillips Collection. When I was going through my archive I discovered it in my very first portfolio!
