Mixed media, 48" x 48", 33 lbs. Images of tree branches, stealth aircraft, chess queen, and a poem by Alva Svoboda "Deep in the Mess of Night" (which was put to music by Randy Greif). Svoboda's poem was the inspiration for the piece, which suggests a quiet struggle of strategy and angst.

AM antenna on the face: it's functional, though for aesthetic reasons I used uninsulated solid wire, rather than insulated, which I think makes it a little less powerful for AM reception.

Gothic/victorian in overall look, it is heavy, and suggested for local pick up only (Portland).

In case you're wondering, yes that's Captain & Tennille's Greatest Hits LP on the turntable. (Turntable/stereo/Edison lamp are not part of the piece)
