Snowshoe Expedition (Two People Fucking) 2003/2010 Two collector friends, a couple, came over to my studio and wanted to see my latest work. They entered an eight-foot tall wooden chamber topped by a Dogloo, a plastic dog-house shaped like an igloo. A speaker housed within the chamber played an audio component. The couple spent quite a bit of time listening, puzzled, but with intense concentration.

Upon emerging, I asked them what they thought they had heard.

"A snowshoe expedition!" exclaims the husband.

"No, its two people fucking, you idiot!" retorts the wife.

They both were wrong.

They both took long showers afterward

and never spoke of it again.
