Dimensions variable, each switch-box is 4.75 x 2.25 x 2.5 inches


Installation at Socrates Sculpture Park. Transparent replicas of electrical switchboxes, with movable parts, run along the fence overlooking the East River. The replica electrical conduit runs down the contour of the shoreline, and enters the water as if running under the river toward Manhattan. Although standing in a working-class neighborhood in Queens, across the river the skyline of the Upper East Side fills the view.
