The Isolator.This was designed by science-fiction pioneer Hugi Gernsbeck in 1925 to keep the mind focused on reading and writing. All distractions are reduced, for the device renders the wearer deaf, pipes them full of oxygen, and allows only one line of text to be seen through a horizontal slit.

David Hammons - Bli-zaard Ball Sale (1983)

"The photos portraying Hammons with his neatly arranged rows of snowballs for sale are probably the most frequently reproduced images in the artist’s oeuvre. The piece has become iconic, the single ephemeral work – a work that is essentially about ephemerality – that has come to stand for his entire practice.”
