Vintage Fisher Space Pen, appropriated audio, rope, eyebolt, parabolic speaker, electrical tape, fiberglass, aluminum rod, gold foil, gold glitter

A Cold War Era Fisher Space Pen at the end of a rope suspends a rundown Sputnik looking object in midair. Garbled murmurs flow through the space until you walk directly under the parabolic speaker that is inside the satellite. The audio clip repeats a product review given in Russian of the Fisher Space Pen. In this piece I explore futility and changeability of ideals over time.
