Artist Statement:

“You wander down a dark and dank hallway. The old green wallpaper peeling along the edges, the wall and floor have both sustained water damage from years of leaking. The air is warm and moist in a way that sits around one’s neck. Suddenly there is a noise behind you, you whip around to catch the source as something flies by your neck. You turn again and are greeted by nothing, shakily you wander towards where you think it may have gone. A strange noise starts from somewhere. Static. You freeze as you feel something drip onto your shoulder. The static is getting louder, louder, louder. You can’t hear your own thoughts. You look up, and that was a mistake.”

Hiya! This is my Piece I call TV monster. I have always had a weird obsession with 1980s tube TVs, and trust me I don’t know why either. Something about them just piques my interest. So I decided to build a strange version of one out of cardboard wire and paint. It honestly looks like something that should be on a Green day or Jack Stauber Album cover. It was a lot of fun to build and I hope you like it!
