I was driving to Maryville several weeks ago and my mind began to wander looking at the radio and cellular towers along the highway. This sketch is of an idea that occurred to me for a temporary installation sculpture. The “towers” would be made of 2×2 lumber, painted black, white and “international orange” and set up on an open hillside somewhere. I’m calling it “Dumb Totem” – the idea being that these things on the landscape may communicate with each other or with our radios, but as a visual presence, they don’t say much to our eyes. Now discuss amongst yourselves.
