Jenny Holzer’s “Truisms” was one of the first artworks that I saw that the people around me didn’t. Visiting the Boston Museum of Fine Arts sometime in the 1980s with my parents. There was a scrolling sign display near the cafeteria that spoke to me, asking questions that seemed both silly and profound. My parents didn’t think it was even slightly interesting, but it spawned a lifelong interest in electronics, scrolling LED signs, and context collapse.
