This 50 foot-long piece, which includes a cliff-hanger ending, was created to wrap around the walls and architectural elements of its initial exhibition venue, 40000, in Chicago. A resolution to the cliff-hanger ending was added on and exhibited three months later at the Hyde Park Art Center, also in Chicago.
