The words come from Rice University professor Timothy Morton, author of Dark Ecology: For a Logic of Future Coexistence.

Timothy Morton argues that ecological awareness in the present Anthropocene era takes the form of a strange loop or Möbius strip, twisted to have only one side. Deckard travels this oedipal path in Blade Runner (1982) when he learns that he might be the enemy he has been ordered to pursue. Ecological awareness takes this shape because ecological phenomena have a loop form that is also fundamental to the structure of how things are.

The solar-powered sign, located at the Gus S. Wortham Memorial Fountain, will be displayed through August.
