In the BFA exhibit in the Quarter Gallery, Ben Lansky did Experiments #1-3. The one that caught my eye the most was Experiment #1: Attempting Simultaneous Duplication of the Documentation of an Event because it shows that you can't capture the same thing twice even using idendical equipment. The reason I found this intriguing is because it's something that is so simple, but in the way it's displayed and express makes the kind of obvious act interesting and a work of art. It was nice to see the two identical cameras displayed as well as the two attempts at taking identical photographs. The images were not the same, but they were close and all had some interest to them anyway.
