|This bare printed circuit board has become a popular artwork. Partly, I suspect, because of its $100 price. The initial edition was twenty boards but I have not declared an edition size. So, when I sell out the first edition, I will make another twenty. Another factor in its popularity is that although it looks great in a frame, doesn't need one since it can come ready to hang from its own chain. The silvery image is difficult to photograph so here's a very short video of that aspect.|
|Post-Sept. 11, 2001 note:
"The open circuit is this society and the closed circuit is the world of religious fanatics: Islamic fundamentalists or groups like Aum Shinrikyo. I think they are all the same in a way. Their worlds are perfect, because they are closed off."
Haruki Murakami, in "A Japanese Writer Analyzes Terrorists and Their Victims,"
January 2021. This work is in the permanent collectons of several public collections including the Detroit institute of Arts, Denver Museum of art and the Museum of New Art. Two editions have sold out. A third edition of thirty is half sold. The combined editions now number eighty.
