Tufts has several quirky fixtures on the Medford/Somerville campus. Visitors to the Tisch library lobby often look up at the ceiling and see this:Although this installation looks like something out of "The DaVinci Code," it's actually a sculpture printed with binary code. Sarah Hollis Perry and Rachel Perry Welty, two School of the Museum of Fine Arts students, designed it in 1997. The binary code spells out Philip Larkin's poem, "New Eyes Each Year."
