About the Work

This consisted of a base made from a black lamp standard supporting a sloped lectern made from sheets of white board. On the lectern was drawn a mock examination paper in linguistic philosophy, supposedly issued by the University of London.
It had several questions, e.g., Which is it more pointed to refer to: a) A quirkish radiogram? b) A radiogram?
This was answered by a drawing. There were references to some of my previous works, 'A Day at the Seaside' being one. The lectern was made low enough for a small child to read.
