Joy Bomb, public installation - City Hall district, Chicago, IL, superballs, modified literature dispenser, May 2001

This was a one-time installation in downtown Chicago when literature dispensers were still allowed on streetcorners. It uses the "destabilizing" potential of superballs to introduce a bit of fun into the ultra-staid atmosphere of Chicago's City Hall area. Of course, the piece reads quite differently from the viewpoint of today's "war on terror."
