both elaborately produced sculptures are conceived of acoustic wave forms of the spoken words 'yes' and 'no'. they reperesents the attempt to materialize the sculptural chararcteristics of sound when flowing through space into a respective visual effigy. the semantic content of the sculptures give answers to unasked questions and hence open up a wide range of interpretation and association. yes/no could additionally be considered a very special portrait of laurie anderson, who originally spoke the two words that have been solidified here.
