What Color is __? takes place during the 2018 Wisconsin Science Festival. Children, teens, and adults from across the state, as well as visitors to the Town Center at The Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, “answer” a 25-question survey using 2×4 Lego blocks of various colors. The questions run the gamut from mundane to poetic. Responses are encoded and stored in a 25-block stack particular to each person. The thousands of 25-block stacks form a wall of information to be compared and analyzed.
