A television got thrown in the backyard so Ania and I decided to paint it. We hung it from a tree above an alleyway.
Children from the projects always scream and play in that alleyway. The message translates to “Wasted Youth” or “Deprived Youth” - hopefully conveying that television is a waste of time and imagination - especially during childhood.
We wanted the kids (and their parents) to look up and see it. The piece lasted five days before someone knocked it down.
I waited a week and put it back in the tree. A little higher, of course.
