5' d; wrecking balls, gallery wall, contact microphones, subwoofers, and sound modification equipment; 2001

The final gallery exhibition was inspired by the imminent destruction of the Consolidated Works Gallery. The 2- 5' diameter "wrecking balls" hang on giant chains on either side of an exhibition wall. The wall and balls have microphones in them so as the audience smashes the balls through the wall (destroying the wall) the tone of the balls striking the walls or each other are then modified and deepened through amplified subwoofers and re--verb that echoes the resonant "smash" throughout the building.
