Description

Made from an old metal roofing vent, a cast-iron crank, gears, steel, guitar picks and strings, and a large hand-lithographed Wall St. sign. The sounds produced are dissonant and somewhat random, echoing the look of the Wall Street sign; corroded, abandoned, broken, oily and wrong. Inspired by the "Occupy Wall Street" movement, this piece highlights the underside of big commerce, showing the obsolete, broken aspects of a system that is in need of change.
