Using marks to represent concepts and capture language was a brilliant invention without which modern civilization would come crashing to a halt. In this work I used experimental media to capture the amazement the early scribes might have felt as they learned their trade. The tablet in this work is enscribed with cuneiform writing, based on text from an artifact at the British Museum.
