Sacredential, 2000
Computerized LED screen ball
19,6” x 15,7” x 15,7”

Sacredential is a computerized LED ball that displays a blessing or 'beraha'. This particular ‘beraha’ is pronounced by rabbis to bless the space where a miracle took place. In this case, the blessing is reproduced and repeated by a spherical machine, not phonetically but visually. On the word of Socrates “never by means of sounds one can imitate the things to declare what they properly are.”
