    Pulpit at Peacock Cemetery, Medford NJ, is an abstracted monument that wavers between fact and fiction. For this multi-media installation, a bird squawks continuously from a single pulpit, emanating an unintelligible sermon from an unseen preacher. The installation is a cryptic allusion to the story of Adonijah Peacock, a gunpowder manufacturer, decapitated in an explosion while working for Washington's Army in 1777. The real Adonijah Peacock is buried near Dickinson’s hometown and is the subject of his fascination and imaginings. Special Thanks: Micah Luce
