I hold tight to the notion that visual art communicates in dimensions where words fail me. Layers of meaning can inhabit a single space:  viewers have ready access to those on the surface at first glance, and reap subsequently deeper rewards if they stay or return. Sigalit Landau's DeadSee (2005) is a smart and mesmerizing piece that lures you with form, color, and movement and serves up a beautiful and poignant surprise. I'm inspired by this work's deceptive simplicity and its capacity for myriad interpretations.
