Jim Sanborn created a sculpture containing a secret message. It sits on the grounds of CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. Yet no one has been able to solve it. Code breakers from around the world have tried for 30 years. They’re stumped. The artist meets with people like cryptologist Elonka Dunin who are desperate to solve the mystery at his Maryland studio every year or so. But Sanborn won’t divulge any clues. It’s too much fun keeping everyone guessing.

There may be many combinations of code cracking solutions. Maybe time of day, things like that. Or maybe they think too hard

The answer is nothing. Maybe its like the famous poem A loft In the loft Sits croft He is soft That was meant to mean fuck all. But people insisted it did. People waste 30 years of their fucking life trying to solve something that had no real meaning.
