    The Public Service Announcement, The Benefit, and The Bill Board Advertisement all combine to give my work a sense of purpose. My project was pieces of a 3-D billboard titled The World is Your Oyster. The tape recorded message piped through the oyster's mouth was a "public service announcement" about pollution in our harbors. A post-postmodern pop sensibility is about accessibility, anti-text, and readability. "PPM-Pop" is also about the "real," not simulations of something else. It was great to be able to show this project at Socrates Sculpture Park because it is a genuine substantive place dripping with real!
