Serious Blockage

Wednesday, 30 March 2011

Someone spent a lot of time on this sculpture, but what I like best about it is that it’s  made out of wood, hopefully culled from a rain forest somewhere in the Pacific Northwest, and fastened to a board with a toxic adhesive derived from the bile of boogeymen and tested on lab-rabbits’ eyes as required by the EPA.

It also takes electrical energy to view it. Real electrical energy with tungsten filaments heating up the atmosphere to prevent imminent Global Cooling. Cutsey little weenie curly fluorescent lamps just don’t cut it here.

I suppose you could mount it on a wall perpendicular to the rays of the sun, but then you could only see the image for about 30 seconds two times a year. If the day is overcast after you and your friends rearranged work schedules just to view it, you’re screwed, and  that would suck donkeys big time.
