Basket Case II / '96 / Rath - written in black felt-tip pen on bottom of basket

Mixed media sculpture of a figurative basket of flowers (a). A tall woven basket contains six black plastic tubes. Each tube has a yellow and black speaker driver attached to the top end, positioned in the basket as if in a flower arrangement. An amplifier in the bottom of the basket is controlled by a toggle switch on the side of the basket that receives power via an electrical cord (b) that plugs into the switch box. When turned on, the speaker drivers vibrate in and out.
