I conceived this piece during the fall of 2010 and completed construction the following summer during my residency at the School of Visual Arts. The collection of materials took me almost a year, gathering various stickers from all the bands I loved. The guitar is a destroyed Fender Stratocaster (sorry, axe fans). The entire instrument is mounted upon a 46" SWAT police-grade riot shield using galvanized steel bolts with vulcanized rubber casings. The riot shield itself is mounted upon a four and a half foot piece of antique stained mahogany. The effect is one of bas-relief.

But the real beauty is in the details.

Centered and fixed upon a steel plate rests an iPhone/iPod Apple-certified universal dock gilded in 22-karat gold leaf. As an accompaniment, a 16 Gig iPod Touch will answer to the svelte aluminum remote (also included, with battery). Using Apple's AirPlay technology, you can then stream your iTunes collection wirelessly throughout your house.

All from this sculpture.
