A giant dispossessed Mickey Mouse, made from the backs of discarded television sets, pulsates with broadcast media from a bygone era. The massive icon (5 meters from ear to toe) lays in the vulnerable position of a homeless man passed out on a sidewalk after a binge. Projectors and mirrors bounce radiant video through every pore of the piece, charging the surrounding space with shifting light and sound.
