64.8 x 49.7 x 1.6 Size (in)‘Reality is not always probable’ is constructed from tens of thousands of white dice and is generated, line by line, by manually emulating the rules of a simple computer binary program. Its title references a quote by Jorge Luis Borges and men’s disquiet towards a lack of controllable or predictable events and the belief that complete knowledge is impossible.
