For this piece, I made a sign declaring that truth is unknowable and that people should stop attempting to understand the world.  The goal was to directly interfere with people’s assumptions about what they were capable of understanding.  While the sign did get a few glances, it is not surprising that almost nobody completely stopped to read it, nor did they visibly care about its message.
