LOOK: "Yellow Brick Road" installation (2006) by fucoid

This is a close up of an installation from 2006. I attempted to interpret The Wizard of Oz with found objects and discarded food stuffs.

This is the interior of an old 36" cathode ray television set. I threw a yellow brick through the screen and spray painted the broken glass yellow. The landscape of yellow glass inside has blue-painted chicken skin and bits of a blue and white checkered dress similar to Dorothy's strewn about. I accented this with drips of yellow mustard.

I was lucky to have the brick land in a suggestive position (like a gaping mouth) so I added false teeth and discarded dental floss. This good fortune guided the design of the rest of the project.
