    Default Antipodes

    I took the Kryptos-mobile down to DC this weekend to visit the Hirshhorn Museum. The Hirshhorn is a wonderful modern art and sculpture museum. And it is the home of a version of the Untitled Kryptos sculpture that you can actually see and touch. It contains pieces of both Kryptos and the Cyrillic Projector, and is titled Antipodes.



    This is from a photo I snapped yesterday. I have several hi-res pics in addition to this.

    Sounds like a nice trip, Rusty. I wonder if people thought your car was Jim Sanborn's if they noticed it in the parking lot...
    Whatever I feel like I wanna do. Gosh!

    With images that close there is no way you made it to the blossoms!

    The K4 text repeats on Antipodes. Here is one place it appears.

    "The K4 text repeats on Antipodes. Here is one place it appears."

    since very few see the org at langley, could this be a
    hint someway, since it appears more than once, on the
    Antipodes, knowing many can find it via web ect
    or veiw in person and then know it appears, more than once.
    and that leaves the Q, are 1,2,3 also shown more than once. Antipodes looks a lot smaller than Kryptos

    Hi Rusty,
    My wife and I paid a visit to D.C. over Labor Day and made a stop at the Hirshhorn
    to check out Kryptos. (I have a few 6-megapixel pictures if anyone is interested).
    I have only one correction to your post: while you can "see" the sculpture, there
    is a sign next to Antipodes asking visitors not to touch the sculpture.

    One thing I took away from seeing Antipodes in person was that, in addition to
    appearing more than once, K4's line divisions were quite different from those of
    Kryptos. From this I conclude that the only reasonable ways to read K4 are
    left-to-right, top-down (like K1 & K2), or right-to-left, bottom-up (starting
    with "RACK" and ending "RKBO?"). I actually favor the latter based on the
    "4 TOP" that appears at the bottom of Sanborn's handwritten grid of K3+K4
    which you see briefly in the NOVA/ScienceNow episode. --Rob
