Before and After

Installation, 18 CRT TV sets, White paint, Eyeball visual on top set.
I wanted to create something so ominous and disconcerting for Nuit Blanche 2010, in a non-conventional environment, that someone would hopefully break it down.
I built it as an ominous totem to the consumption and privacy of looking and the cathode ray tube. I wanted it to be unsettling, disconcerting and something that made you question what you see or perceive to be in the light it is represented. The pyramid as a mystical symbol of power has connotations to temples, money, secret organizations as well as the eye being part of the symbol of the all seeing eye.
Someone was incensed enough to knock it down, almost attacking the very connotations the piece itself was intended to create.
