Twelve slowly flashing eight-foot florescent lights fifty feet apart in a Pennsylvania meadow,
powered by my car idling on a dirt road.
|The installation was cut short due to an approaching electrical storm and the
my lamps and I were the tallest objects in sight for miles.
Hurriedly gathering fifteen hundred feet of
12 gauge insulated house wire in
cold rain was not one of my better life choices.
I did find time to think a lot about basic physics and Ben Franklin though.

Special thanks to Jarrett DeMartino who as an undergrad at NYC's School of Visual Arts
helped this teacher with his first animation.
