At the Dog and Pony Show, 2010
3 minutes 34 seconds
Documentation of continuously running sculpture at the Ellis Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University.

Tools, a fractal digital antenna, a geodesic dome made from several copies the New York times, various schematics, Wilhelm Reich's "Rules to Follow in Cloud Engineering", wall text, laser printed pennants, a library copy of John Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men", scrap wood, Styrofoam, a radio, a portable television, a box fan, reflective Mylar, a modified song by the Clash, a long pole, and a white t-shirt

The title of this installation is "At the Dog and Pony Show." It was set up in the Ellis Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University from March 1st to March 12th, 2010. "Guns of Pittsburgh" (where the name Pittsburgh replaces the word Brixton) can be heard in a continuous loop on the radio that is being broadcast from a pirate radio station. The fractal antenna is receiving one of the last analog stations that you can tune into in Pittsburgh: a jewelry-shopping channel.
