Alright, decided on the project for the swing: "Five Minutes After." Anyone who lived through the nuclear 50s ~ 70s can remember the fear that nuclear winter and total global destruction were imminent. I want to set up the swing, tattered and burned, surrounded by a charred low white picket fence, melted pink flamingos, and a skeleton clutching a tall blasted cocktail glass dressed in bermuda shorts and a pink polo shirt, perhaps with penny loafers and a jaunty straw fedora. A watch on the skeleton's wrist would be set at five after midnight. I'd wire the skeleton securely to one seat of the swing, the second seat would be sittable and shaded. Lighting would be simple and basic.
Think I could get this out on the playa? All my art has been modest and either bike mobile or placed in front of my camp. Thoughts?
