Space Rays/Race
Space Rays/Race
2006

Fountain Square neighborhood, Indianapolis

Recycled construction site trailer, aluminum signs, barricades, battery operated blinking lights

11 ft x 6 ft x 9 ft

Independent project; produced with funds from the Efroymson Contemporary Art Fellowship Description: This construction site trailer has a sign on one side that states "Don't Be Afraid of the Space Rays", while the opposite side reads "Don't Be Afraid of the Space Race". The subtle word variation (inspired by a misheard conversation) creates a different message depending on the direction one is headed.
It has been located in various locations around Indianapolis for extended amounts of time and is currently parked in the Fountain Square district.
