“Meltdown: We’re all doing the very best we can under the circumstances”

This sculpture installation of multiples by SANDRA HALPN, entitled “Meltdown: We’re doing the very best we can under the circumstances” accompanies the main video, “Carnival of Useless Things.” The forms are made of PomPom bottles covered in plaster, with a pink painted pingpong ball on top. The are references several things, including the arctic meltdown (snowmen) as well as a failed carnival ball-toss game, since the balls are too big for the hole. The whole video installation is a parody of the late night cable infomercials encouraging viewers to spend more on useless things to make them even more useless.
