Walter Alter

portfolio: sculpture

From 1984 to 1992 the artist erected numerous site-specific
temporary sculpture pieces at various San Francisco dance
clubs, galleries and performance spaces. These sculptures
were created from salvaged electical conduit tubing joined
together with wrappings from strips of rubber truck tire
inner tube. Added to the steel skeletons were a variety of
old TV sets with prepared screens. On some occasions,
video tape programming would be played through the
ensemble of TV's, and on other occasions they would be
tuned to local broadcast stations.
