Two flip-boards of the kind usually used for advertising, have been erased of all text or imagery. Emptied of information and bereft of purpose, they remain as mere support structures, or containers, for a potential text that fails in its delivery. Their screens turn over endlessly, alternating without meaning, in an attempt at communication that never quite succeeds.
